So awhile ago I was asked by a publisher if I might be interested in reviewing some board books. I'm a pretty avid babysitter so I figured "Hey why not see if these are any good" and so I looked up the books in question and just about died from the cuteness/awesomeness. So of course my response was "HECK YES I WILL FEATURE THOSE FO SHO!!!"
Allow me to introduce you guys to the wonderfulness of the BabyLit Board Books. Basically these are board books that take famous classics and use them to teach counting or colors. The concept is great and the execution great. The illustrations are whimsical and absolutely FREAKING ADORABLE. These are hands down the best educational board books I have ever run across. Me, my sister, and my mother all want our own sets of the BabyLit board books. They're that awesome.
Now that I've told you all about these cute board books you're probably dying to see pictures of them right? Yeah, I thought so. I was lucky enough to get sent copies of the Alice in Wonderland Color Primer and the Jane Eyre Counting Primer so behold: Photos of the cutest board books ever.
I mean look at those covers? How could anyone resist opening these?
These are some of my favorite pages from the Alice in Wonderland book:
And these are some of my favorite pages from the Jane Eyre one:
See why I want to own every single BabyLit board book?
Currently there are four BabyLit board books available for purchase.
Pride and Prejudice: A Counting Primer
Alice in Wonderland: A Colors Primer
Jane Eyre: A Counting Primer
Romeo and Juliet: A Counting Primer
There are also two more that are going to be published this fall but you can already check them out on Amazon!
Dracula: A Counting Primer (August 1, 2012)
A Christmas Carol: A Colors Primer (September 1, 2012)
If you want to get a closer look at the inside of any of the already published BabyLit books you can head on over to the Amazon links above and "Look Inside" each of them. They're all SUPER cute!
Do you guys love these board books as much as I do? Would you buy them? Which one is your favorite? What classic do you think they should use next? Personally I would love to see a Robin Hood counting book. Treasure Island would also be awesome!
