65. More About Little Pear

More About Little Pear by Eleanor Frances Lattimore
Fourth (and final) Little Pear book


Pages: 125
Finished: Apr. 9, 2008
First Published: 1971
Genre: children fiction
Rating: 4.5/5

First Sentence:

Little Pear was a Chinese boy.


Reason for Reading: next in the series. Read aloud to my 7yo

Comments: Little Pear is 7 years old now and has finished his first year of school. It is now summer vacation and his days are free to spend with his family and his friend, Big Head. Each book in this series has been just as good as the others and this one is no exception. The love for China and its people shines through on each page and Little Pear is one of the most charming characters in children's literature that we have met. This is the final book about Little Pear and he will be sadly missed by both the 7yo and I.
