Review quote

When I stumbled across a new book series called "BabyLit" where youngsters are introduced to Shakespeare (Romeo and Juliet) and our Jane (Pride and Prejudice) early I just about died with joy. It also helps that the cover is Squee-Worthy. These adorable "Counting Primer" board-books are brought to you by Gibbs Smith publishers, and I can tell you from the sneak peek I've been given of the contents that they are truly adorable (and involve ball gowns, violins, horses, marriage proposals and a mention of our Darcy's 10,000 a year). If you want to get your little bub interested in Jane Austen as much as you, then with words by Jennifer Adams and quaint cartoon illustrations by Alison Oliver (that remind me of a mixture of Roger Hargreave's Mr.Men/Little Miss books blended with Satoshi Kitamura's UFO Diary), 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 ten then this is a must buy.--Jennifer Duke"" (07/07/2011)

Customer reviews

It is a truth universally acknowledged that every small child is in want of this book.

"...I would recommend this for both your tiny ladies AND gentlemen, because little boys can enjoy the classics too, and that includes Austen. Plus, numbers and counting are for people of every gender! This also makes a sweet and unique gift for any Janeite." For full review, please visit me at Here Be Bookwyrms on Blogger! more
