I have the Alice and Wonderland book by this author and both my 3yr old and infant really love that book...so, I was excited to see this Christmas Carol book. However, the pictures in this book don't really grab their attention as much. The book has pictures related to the story and each page just names one of the objects and the color of it (ie: "gold chains"). I like it, but would really recommend the Alice one instead because I love that one.

Not enough of a story to be a fun book, my son was not interested in this book. Great idea just not enough put into it.

My 2 year old loves to look at this book. She loves the colors, but she really loves looking for the mouse on each page. Such a great idea!

This purchase was my introduction to the BabyLit series. I really wasn't sure what I was getting when I purchased this. I love this classic tale, and wanted to begin to introduce my son (18 months) to it in a "baby friendly" way. In case you are wondering, as I was, I will explain a bit of the book, which I am guessing is similar to the other books in this series.
There is no plot or story here, and the characters are not really introduced although some of them are visible. Each page shows an item or character from the story and a few words, usually including a color, describing it. For example, one of the pages shows a non-threatening Jacob Marley and says "Gold Chains". This is basically how the book works. I doubted what impact this book would have on my child, but he did seem to enjoy it somewhat, however, he doesn't ask for it like he does other books. He does remember some of the pages. Because we made it fun, he did enjoy periodically saying "Bah Humbug" which made everyone laugh. I can't say whether it is a great purchase or not. I'm not too sure how well it introduces little ones to the classics, but it does reinforce descriptors like colors, and my son enjoyed it although it is clearly not his favorite read.

My first BabyLit book and not my last! Love introducing babies and small children to great literature in ways they can enjoy. By the time children who have been exposed to these books reach kindergarten they will be familiar with the names Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, etc. and books like Moby Dick, Pride and Prejudice. Of course they won't know much about them, but they will know there is a world beyond the wonderful One Fish Two Fish and Golden Books.

The more beauty we expose our children to when they are young, the more they are ready to appreciate all the wonderful things the world has to offer.

Baby lit books are our all time favorite books! They are small books, but that does not underestimate the goodness inside. We have ordered just about all of the baby lit books and love to swap them out during seasons and holidays. I also love that they have different primers and different types of learning for your little one. These books are great gift ideas, there are a lot of genres to choose from. The artwork and colors are bright and vivid, very pleasant to look at. The mommy and the teacher in me loves and approves these books!

I ordered this to see what these books are like - I am very fond of fine literature. Combining it with another of my favorites is a win/win combo!! I like the idea of planting the idea of reading classic stories even for infants. And the author+illustrator did a fine job of combining a simple grammatical concept with a well known story. I'm buying more of them!
