Editorial Reviews

An artful exploration of the seasons. ... This is a lovely poetic encounter in both word and image.
-Kirkus Reviews

[A] lovely oversize board book... First and foremost it is an art book, showcasing Bowers's appealing graphic-, almost impressionistic, style paintings. ... This offering is as bright and ephemeral as a pear blossom.
-School Library Journal

Little Pear Tree is a gorgeous, eye-catching explosion of color that invites little hands to explore the seasons with an array of images and words tucked behind cleverly designed flaps. Young readers will enjoy searching for the next hidden gem and grown-ups will want to do it right along with them.
