Take a walk with the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come in Little Master Dickens’ A Christmas Carol: A BabyLit® Colors Primer. See old Jacob Marley shaking silver chains, gold stars shining around the Ghost of Christmas Past, and a red scarf keeping Tiny Tim warm. This bright retelling of a Christmas classic will scare any “bah, humbug” feelings away.
All the BabyLit primers are super cute, and this is no exception. This color primer is very slim on text (two words per page), but there’s room to fill in more of the story yourself if you know it!
I love the illustrations in this book, they are gorgeous! This book mentions little portions of the traditional Christmas Carol story and incorporates learning colors, but might feel a little disjointed for those who don’t know the traditional story well (especially little ones).
