I nearly wish I had a baby so I could buy these books...,
This review is from: Cozy Classics: Moby Dick (Board book)
Well, O.K. that's a huge exaggeration. I've had teens and that pretty much cured any baby yearnings I may have had in the past... ;-) But still...these books are so deliciously CUTE! They combine adorableness (perfect for babies & toddlers) with the classics (perfect for literature loving moms & dads).
I always worked hard to nurture the love of literature in my children from an early age. I wish this brilliant idea of a baby board book was around when they were in arms. What a perfect way to introduce babies to time-honored stories and characters! Babies won't have any idea of what is going on, but after cutting their teeth on these board books (perhaps literally, lol) they'll at least have a foundation of being introduced to some of the greatest stories of all time. How many of us can say we loved Pride and Prejudice before we could read a word? :-) Thanks to Cozy Classics, that can be a reality for your nerdy baby (and I say that as a compliment).
Each book features felted figures (cozy!) in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings. The pictures look almost 3-D and remind me of some of the story books I used to have (and adore) as a child.
Each page features one word on the left side of the 2 page spread and felted character or objects on the 2nd that illustrate a part of the classic story. I find the illustrations (photographs actually) to be really original and endearing.
If I had a baby, I would get these books. Even without one, as a collector of children's books, I'm highly tempted... They are lovely! Who said babies can't be homeschooled? Start their love of literature with these sweet introductions to the classics!
I was given free e book versions of these adorable board books in exchange for my honest review.
