Cuddle up with a classic! In twelve needle-felted scenes and twelve child-friendly words, each book in this ingenious series captures the essence of a literary masterpiece. Simple words, sturdy pages, and a beloved story make these books the perfect vehicle for early learning with an erudite twist. Budding bookworms will delight in this clever retelling of the classics made just for them! In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, meet two devoted sisters, gossip about two rich and handsome friends, and ponder whether Elizabeth Bennet will say yes. It’s a first words primer for your literary little one! The Cozy Classics series is the brainchild of two brothers, both dads, who were thinking of ways to teach words to their very young children. They hit upon the classics as the basis for their infant primers, and the rest, as they say, is history. From Moby Dick to Pride and Prejudice, here are The Great Books of Western Literature for toddlers and their parents in board book form-mdash;a little bit serious, a little bit ironic, entirely funny and clever, and always a welcome gift.
I'm a huge Jane Austen fan (particularly Pride and Prejudice), so this book automatically had my heart on some level. The single word per page was fine, but left a little to be desired and I thought it was interesting how very clearly the illustrations seemed to be based on the 6-hour Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle version of the movie.
