Write a Review Wednesday: #BabyLit Books

Say it Rah-shay By Mar 22, 2012 No Comments

Classic literature for babies?
Why yes! It’s simple with Baby Lit‘s new series of board books featuring characters from classic literature.

Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver team up to create this series of books and what great combination!  Parents will enjoy introducing the classics to young readers and children will enjoy the contrasting colors, bright pages and simple concepts these books present.

The two books I was sent to review, Alice in Wonderland and Jane Eyre are perfect for little hands, The sturdy pages will last with constant handling and are right for reading (and more re-reading) of the books.

About the books:
Alice in Wonderland, by Little Master Carroll, introduces colors and ideas from the book its name is taken from. Children will learn their colors and characters from the book.

Little Miss Bronte’s Jane Eyre is a counting book. This book shares ten themes from the classic in a fun way for all readers.

The illustrations are funky and fun and dark and wonderful. They are simple yet unique and totally extend the short text.

General Considerations:
Readers at my library enjoyed the books. Children liked the being able to guess the colors and adults were interested in the literature they could share.

But you don’t have to take my word! Visit BabyLit online or stop by your library (shameless plug) for more information about the books or to get a copy for your future English Lit major.

Reconsidering reading Bronte,


I am mom, daughter, sister, yarn lover, word lover, crazy cat lady and library chick. Find me with book or with hook and a hot cuppa.
