A rhyming story about a bear who enjoys oranges, pears and apples. An orange, a pear, an apple and a bear. Deliciously simple. Perfectly fun. The utter simplicity of this beautiful picture book is breathtaking. By rearranging just four words, Emily Gravett creates a series of playful images which are a sheer joy and intensely satisfying. The loose energy of the pencil and watercolour pictures will be irresistible to adults and children alike.

My 5.5 yo literate son really enjoyed this book and, I think he felt like "he" was the one reading this book. He LOVED it!

I like to start off my storytimes with a really simple, short book, and this is my number-one go-to choice.

An adorable and silly book with only four words.

Five words make up the entire text of this charming book about colours, shapes and sequence.

Thinking this would be a great book, it only has four words in it.. orange pear apple bear... bore...
The pictures are cute and well illustrated. Book is defiantly more suitable for beginning readers. Not a good story time book.
