I sat down and read Moby Dick with my 10 month old tonight… the BabyLit version of course. I love reading with our little guy, but not so much that we could make it through the 206,052 words of the real thing. BabyLit introduces classic literature to little ones in easy to read, board books that teach colors, numbers, and other simple words to little learning minds. I received a selection of BabyLit books, and an adorable book tote in exchange for my review, all opinions are my own.
BabyLit Books – Classic Literature for Little Learning Minds
With Alice in Wonderland introducing a world of colors and Huckleberry Finn teaching camping words (just in time for my hubby to try to convince me I want to go camping this spring…) – these books have adorable illustrations and quotes from the original classics that inspire the artwork and simple starter words. Starting at $9.99, these books are a fun gift to add to a stocking or a gift bag for the little ones on your list this holiday. Romeo and Juliet will teach them about counting with love letters, friends, and kisses, while Wuthering Heights will teach them about weather that Catherine and Heathcliffe experience as they walk the grounds.
In addition to the books, BabyLit carries playsets to bring the books to life, adorable tote bags that feature the amazing illustrated characters are the perfect way to transport all your books to and from your local library, and buttons will help keep the imagination alive.
I love sharing the beginner version of my favorite classics with my son, I hope as he gets older they encourage him to dive into the original classics to find out more about the Baloo the Bear, the Great White Whale, and Dr. Frankenstein’s Monster.
