    Yay! Finally an Emily Gravett book that I really like. (Thanks to my friends who encouraged me to read this one!) This one is so cute! The story is made up of four words (orange, pear, apple, bear) arranged in different ways to convey different meanings--the illustrations help a lot with conveying the meanings, too. Together, they create a fun and charming story that will especially appeal to those of us who enjoy the complexities of sentence structure and language and how punctuation and sequen Yay!

Or, you could just read it because the bear is really, really cute ;-)

    CONCEPT This book is a concept book, and the publisher suggested it for ages 1-4. I think that the age range should be higher, because it attempts to involve the concept of dual meanings and grammatical syntax.. Gravett only uses 5 words throughout the book, and uses the illustrations to convey the meaning. The first few pages show an orange, a pear, an apple, and a bear. The next page shows an apple and a pear, and the next page shows an orange bear, followed by an orange pear.

The next page shows an apple and a pear, and the next page shows an orange bear, followed by an orange pear. Thus, the different arrangements of the words and the use of commas dictate each illustration. I think maybe 4-6 year olds would understand this concept more thoroughly than 1-4 year olds. I think that this would be a great book to read to a kindergarten class to see if they catch on to the relationship between words and illustrations.

    Only five words are used throughout this book, and what's fun is to see that the meanings change depending on how the words are arranged. I imagine children will enjoy seeing the silly way the meanings change, and it's a good way to introduce them to words and word order. The illustrations are fun and cute and overall I would recommend this title.

    Beautiful illustrations and very clever how Gravett only uses five words, but changes the meanings of these words depending on the way they are rearranged. Would easily appeal to young children and would help them to visually understand the difference between the objects i.e. apples and pears.

    A delightful book about playing around with four words, ORANGE PEAR APPLE BEAR, to make new scenarios!

    A delightful little board book that wee ones will "read" to you just by naming the picture on the page.

    Everyone can remember a time when grammar has failed them. The results are usually quite amusing, whether someone likes cooking their family and their cat rather then cooking, their family and their cat or whether a driver is being made aware of slow children crossing, rather then being told to drive slow because children are crossing.

Grammar is hard but teaching grammar shouldn't be. Orange Pear Apple Bear it a fantastic book to use to show children the importance of a comma. It shows clearly how missing one out can drastically change the meaning of what written. This book would be a great classroom aid for use when introducing commas and as refresher for those older children who still haven't quite got it, or for those who don't really understand why they are using them. Grammar aside now, this book is, to quote eh back cover "Deliciously simple. Perfectly fun". Only 4 words are used throughout, the title words: Orange Pear Apple Bear. But they are used so effective you don't realise how simple the text actually is. The text is accompanied by some superb illustrations that show exactly what the text portrays. I rad this book over and over its super!

    There's just something extra special and sweet about this book. Everyone in my household loves it and we cuddle on the sofa often to enjoy it together. I adore when I hear my girls reading it together by themselves. My four year old reads it to her two year old sister who loves to yell "bear!" at the appropriate spots. This book has given my little family lots of special moments together that I'm sure I'll cherish as memories when my girls are older.

    I am so amused by this book. No storyline, one only character and three fruits. But it is so cute! PSHE: it is very helpful to improve EY children to improve their ability to distinguish similar and different language sounds, especially tone, tempo and beat, and to get aware of alliteration, ryhme and rhythm.

Children laugh with joy at the simplicity of it and I would recommend it for anyone who loves beautiful books. It is a great book to use in the Foundation Stage or possibly in Key Stage one for those just grasping English as there are only four words! Possible suggestions for using this book in a lesson could be to make crossovers with healthy eating and making posters with fruit and veg encouraging healthy eating. It could also be nice to make some performance of the book as it would be very simple but it could still provide a challenge for the children. They could compose atmospheric music that could be played while someone reads and others perform movements to the words.

    Here's an example of the sort of book that the Caldecott types would miss--but no parent of a small child should. This is a deceptively simple book. As my all-knowing :) assistant points out, there are more words in the jacket flap description than there are in the text! And there ARE only 5 words in the text--the first 4 are in the title. But what amazing things can be done with just those 5 little words, arranged in different combinations! The illustrations are just right too--not perfectly colo Here's an example of the sort of book that the Caldecott types would miss--but no parent of a small child should.

The illustrations are just right too--not perfectly colored, so that they stray over the borders just as a young child might do and make this even more child friendly. Perfect in every way, right down to the bold print that would make this equally suited for a very early reader, and the illustrations on their end papers. Put down "sophisticated" stuff for a few minutes and enjoy this gem!

    I loved this book. It was amazing how Gravett took 4 simple words and developed them into a number of different concepts. The objects were initially introduced separately, but each new page mixed up the words to create a number of different colored fruits and a bear. This book demonstrated the power of a few simple words, and how simply, by mixing them up, you can create a number of different ideas. I have read this book aloud to children at my daycare, and they loved it. It goes along well with I loved this book.

It goes along well with an activity where you choose 4 different words and have the children mix them up to create different ideas. The pictures are simple on a white background, but they are gorgeous watercolor paintings that pop right off of the page. The coloring of the pictures help to develop the different color ideas that the author creates with her words.

Reaction?: I LOVED the illustrations in this book! They were so simple and amusing to look at, especially the bear and the way he interacted with the fruit -- and his expressions when he changes color! I thought it was a great way to introduce kids to word order and how when you switch around words in a sentence they can have a totally new meaning.

    Orange Pear Apple Bear is a book that uses four different words throughout the story and rearranges them in a different order to give a slightly different meaning to each part of the story. I think this story would be good for younger children as it repeats the words quite often and uses them in different contexts, for example an orange bear aswel as showing the orange fruit. The book also uses rhyming words and is a nice easy introduction to rhyming for younger children.

    This is one of my favorite picture books of all time and I use it often. The text only contains 5 words total, but the genius part about this book is how they are arranged in linguistically satisfying ways to round out the book. Watercolor artwork showcases the playful combinations of words. Overall, a great read aloud for PreK-2.

    Fun. Whimsical. Charming. Cute. Educational. Five (other) words in the book and inventive and intriguing pictures. This is a terrific book for very young children, although, for the very young especially, the adult reading it could enhance the experience of the book by explaining some of the combinations of shapes and colors that match the pictures to the words.

    I saw this in a bookstore and picked it up because, yes, I sometimes do judge a book by its cover. What a wonderful book! In just five words and lovely, lively pictures, Emily Gravett captures the reader's attention as orange, pear, apple and bear are imaginatively recombined and rearranged. There!

    Using five words in the entire book but mixing them up in creative ways along with luscious illustrations, this picture book centers around a very large bear who juggles various fruits and then eventually eats them. The colors and shapes are intriguing even after multiple readings.

    This is a great book for early readers as the words match perfectly to the pictures, and there are really only 4 words in the whole book. I read it tonight with my 4 1/2 year old. A great confidence builder. And a very cute book.

E.g. the bear is an orange colour so the caption next to it is 'orange bear'. This is showing children that the word orange has more than one meaning so the pictures show different ways as either a colour or a piece of fruit. Another picture shows the bear in the shape and colour of an apple. Therefore, this widens children's imagination to see what images of apples can be made into. There is a rhyme to the book throughout as the sentences always finish with 'pear' or 'bear' with 'orange' or 'apple' coming before it or in between. This keeps a rhythm for the child reading the book which could make it easier for them to read or ready to by another person.

    A simple yet engaging picture book created through the rearrangement of only four words. Gravett creates an inviting and playful book for the early years. The words and pictures work closely together to demonstrate the meaning behind the rearrangement of the words. For example, Orange Bear would show a bear in the colour orange.

Whilst this book is very simple, it serves the purpose to introduce young children into the world of books and develop their language. This therefore helps in the development of their reading whilst maintaining their engagement as it is not too complicated for them to understand, particularly with the help of the pictures.
