Review quote

I don't usually write about books for babies but today I came across a set of board books that I just had to share with all of you. 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! As for an actual review, and not just decor suggestions, I purchased the iBook version of Little Miss Austen: Pride & Prejudice (one of my absolute favorites) and 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)show more
