How cute are these books? Seriously! Baby Lit Books take these well known classics and turn them into something that every baby would love. The pictures are bursting with character and color. They teach counting and colors. Reading this book to your child will give them their first introduction to classic literature but in a very fun way. The Baby Lit series includes: Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, and Pride and Prejudice. I only wish that this series was available when my kids were babies. These books are adorable.

Another babylit book, this one pertaining to the psychedelic classic, Alice in Wonderland. The overt purpose of the book is to teach about colors, but the underlying mission remains - introducing young readers to great books of literature. All of the color choices here invoke a character or important moment from the inspiring book. For example, a blue caterpillar, red hearts on the Queen of hearts, and black shoes on Alice as she falls through the rabbits hole. The Cheshire cat is orange, and the illustrator cleverly superimposes the color on a pink background close in shade, so that the cat seems to fade into the picture. The illustrations are charming and funny, and capture the surreal world of the novel that the book is presenting. One other detail on these books, that I overlooked in the other reviews, is the cute titles the authors use for the original writers, calling them little miss or little master. This is just another nice touch in a series that applies its imagination and intelligence in every detail. I love these books. I know the gifts I will be buying for all baby showers in the future.

I love the entire series of classics for preschoolers and early readers as much as my 2-year-old granddaughter -- If you have kids or grandkids, these are a great addition to your home library and will get children interested in the classics from an early age. Each has a different educational element to it:Little Miss Austen: Pride and Prejudice is a counting primer Sense and Sensibility is a an opposites primerLittle Miss Bronte: Wuthering Heights is a weather primerLittle Master Conan Doyle: Sherlock Holmes in The Hound of the Baskervilles is a sounds primerLittle Master Kipling The Jungle Book is an animals primerLittle Master Carroll Alice in Wonderland a colors primer
