Review: These are wonderful! Thanks to Eric at Quirk Books for sending them to me. I only wish they’d been published earlier when my grand-niece was still at this baby board book stage – it might have really helped. These are absolutely lovely little books that are very simple and easy to understand (though the term “governess” might take some explaining to babies/toddlers) and the colors and illustrations are absolutely fabulous. I think the “Alice in Wonderland” primer was my favorite, though, because it had all of my favorite characters (including the Red Queen) with all of their colors! And some of the illustrations are downright hilarious. “Jane Eyre” is more somber but gets the job of teaching numbers to babies done just as well. A short review, but there’s not much to say about these books other than I’m sure that babies will definitely love all of the bright colors and it will make them easier for them to learn. I know I had fun looking at them, and I’m 27 years old.
