What do board books and classic novels have in common? A new series from Gibbs Smith brings classic writers like Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare to toddlers by creating oversized board books with bright colors and easy to understand words. BabyLit board books are a must for every travel savvy parent's carry-on luggage. -- (04/24/2012) These adorable "Counting Primer" board-books are brought to you by Gibbs Smith publishers, and they are truly adorable. If you want to get your little bub interested in Jane Austen as much as you, then you can't go past this. With gorgeous pinks, greens, blues and other dusty colours it's the most elegant children's book I've seen in a while, and if your child is learning their 1 to 10 then this is a must buy. -- (07/07/2011) Perfect as a gift for a literary-loving expectant mother or to introduce your little one to the classics, BabyLit(R) has brilliantly created primers out of classic literature such as Pride & Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet and Alice in Wonderland, written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Allison Oliver. Four of the titles have even been turned into iBooks and are available for purchase on the iBookstore. Not only that, you can purchase prints, stuffed character dolls, buttons and totes that correspond with each of the tales. How adorable would these Pride & Prejudice prints be to decorate a little girl's nursery, complete with a Mr. Darcy doll? I'm honestly in love with these products! I was impressed with the format of the text and bright images. I also loved the simple interactivity that can be found by touching the pictures on certain pages. Children will love to find the sounds of people talking, horses neighing and music playing as they read this story. --Amy"The Brilliant Blog for Children's Books" (03/07/2013) A small compact cardboard version of a book - easy for a child to hold, unrippable and chewable. At 22 pages, it was both compact and lightweight, but what will ultimately appeal to parent and child is the Pride and Prejudice theme. . . . I was awed by the choice of characters, Regency clothing and objects used and the ease of the text.. Charming, whimsical and historical accurate, Pride & Prejudice: A BabyLit Counting Primer offers the very young reader an early introduction to Jane Austen, planting seeds for her total world take-over! --Laurel Ann Nattress"" (08/03/2011)
