BabyLit from Gibbs Smith publishing has four titles to date:
Alice in Wonderland , Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet are written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver. They are by no means a retelling of he classic novels but take images from the stories to teach colors and counting. When I was a buyer of toddler books I would have loved them. I also knew that they wouldn't be something I could place in all stores. These clever little books would be put in select stores because they are part of a niche market. I personally love the illustrations and since I have read all four stories I would understand the images that are presented. I think they are a great novelty gift for a new mother, especially if she is a reader and lover of literature. I just think they are a fun way to introduce classics to kids.
