Review quote

What do board books and classic novels have in common? A new series of books from BabyLit! BabyLit board books 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.

Written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver, the BabyLit series brings literature alive for little ones. Some are counting primers, while others like Little Master Carroll: Alice In Wonderland simply share important words that sum up the story.

Board books are a wonderful way to engage your child's interest while traveling; they keep small hands busy and give tiny mouths something to chew on. BabyLit board books are a must for every travel savvy parent's carry-on luggage.
