Giftable Books: Orange Pear Apple Bear by Emily Gravett

This quirky but winning little picture book uses only four words–orange, pear, apple and bear–to conjure a variety of silly fruit-with-bear still life images that play with concepts like shape, color, and punctuation (which matters!).

From orange pears to juggling bears, this book is a giggly reminder that it’s fun to play with your food and your words.
