I am so pleased to have been introduced to this series of books! (Confessions of a Psychotic Housewife 2012-03-31)

The illustrations in this baby book are incredible!...If you’re a literature buff like me, you’ll love introducing your child to Mr. Rochester and Jane at an early age. Jennifer Adams has more books in this series, and I would recommend them all. (vivian4kids 2012-03-26)

The Baby Lit Books are classical looking and will have any shelf they are on stand out from their beauty. They are simply gorgeous. But mostly, the Baby Kit Books will help young children learn how to count and understand colors, while awakening a subconscious curiosity for the classics. (Kid Lit Reviews 2012-04-02)

BabyLit books make classic literature fun for a younger audience. Did I mention I love this idea? Simply brilliant! (The Mama Report 2012-04-02)

The artwork in this book is stunning...The details in every page are well executed and you can tell a lot of thought went into every page. I love these books for kids and can't wait to share them with my kids one day. (Laura Moore The Reading Nook 2012-04-02)

Author Jennifer Adams' text is paired beautifully with art by Alison Oliver. With colors that capture the time period, and delicate lines around printed forms, Jane Eyre is a visual delight in board book format. (Lorie Ann Grover readertotz 2012-03-19)

If you like the classics and you have a young child that you want to introduce them to, these are the perfect books for the job! (Julie Graves myfavoritepastime.blogspot.com 2012-03-13)

Jane Eyre is my favorite classic, so I was so excited to get this book.

It doesn't really have a story line, but it has great pictures and includes moments from the book.

The illustrations by Alison Oliver are irresistibly cute and the color palettes are terrific.

A little disappointed it wasn't "One Mad Wife..."

Great idea in theory, but a little repetitive if you want to have a collection of these books (which I thought I would). Perhaps an alphabet or word primer for some of them would be a better idea?

I really don't have a problem with these books. They are super simple children's books (hence the 1+ age reference) that introduce ideas like counting or color recognition while drawing loosely on classic book themes like Jane Eyre or Romeo and Juliet. My daughter is almost three and loves this series because of the bright pictures and simple words. While we read I usually add in a little more about the original book like who a certain charter is etc..I don't really feel these book are some evil marketing ploy to get adult book nerds to buy them and try to turn they children into mini book nerds. Really how could a two or three year old begin to grasp Jane Eyre or Romeo and Juliet? These are perfect little primers for parents who can't stand to read the same old 1,2,3 books anymore.

Gorgeous board book! This book has a beautiful matte finish and is very high quality. I would love to have the whole set. It doesn't really have a story line, but it has great pictures and includes moments from the book.

I have little to no explanation as to why this series ended up charming the skirt off me as much as it has. Out of all of the lot, Little Miss Bronte is by far my favorite. The somber, darker pallet used for the illustrations adds a nice little gothic flair to the tone of the book, although I must say that number three is a bit sinister. Three little candles left lit by a bed, hm?

Jane Eyre is a pretty good counting primer and introduction to the novel. My first BabyLit book was Pride & Prejudice, which I think is done much better, so that's why Jane only got 4 stars rather than 5.

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.

was privileged to get these two books Little Master Carroll- Alice and WonderLand and Little Miss Bronte- Jane Eyre , they are two books in a series of BabyLit books published by Gibbs Smith Publisher and Written by Jennifer Adams , illustrated by Alison Oliver.

I will start with my thoughts on the Alice and Wonderland book . This book was classified as a Colors Primer. The colors were vibrant and easy for a young child to follow along and to learn. I love how the classic stories are integrated in a easy way for young kids , bringing to life the stories we all know and love.

Jane Eyre was just as delightful as Alice and Wonderland, though the colors were not a bright , but that is ok cause Jane Eyre is a Counting Primer not a color one . I found the illustrations to be nice and whimsical and once again this book was a nice twist on the classic Jane Eyre , setting up some key ideas that as the reader gets older they would recognize the ideas in the original classic.

I highly recommend these books for young readers, and I will be looking into getting the rest of the series for my 2 year old .. she loved them.
