Books provided by publisher for review.
With the perennial popularity of classic writers like Jane Austen and William Shakespeare, Baby Lit™ is a fashionable way to introduce your toddler to the world of classic literature. With clever, simple counting text by Jennifer Adams, paired with stylish design and illustrations by Sugar’s Alison Oliver, Little Miss Austen and Little Master Shakespeare are a must for every savvy parent’s nursery library.
I am thrilled at the opportunity to share these little gems on the blog. Bright bold illustrations, and concise text make these a great choice for sharing with little ones. Whether it be the early concepts of colours or counting, the Baby Lit series introduces them in a clever and unique way by presenting them alongside beloved and very simplified classics. We have the first two from the series in my library and we can’t seem to keep them on the shelves, they are always checked out. Though not ideal for a story time read aloud they are perfect for sharing one on one, and would make a wonderful baby gift. As a fan of classics I can also see these being adored and appreciated by any book lover. I’ll definitely be collecting the series.
