What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Filled with interactive wheels and pull-tabs and lavishly illustrated, Lit for Little Hands: Pride and Prejudice is an unprecedented kid’s introduction to Jane Austen’s beloved classic novel. Unlike many board books that tackle the classics, Lit for Little Hands tells the actual story in simple, engaging prose. Goregous pastoral illustrations transport the reader to the fields and estates of Lizzy’s England, while tons of interactive elements invite kids to spin the dancers at the ball, care for Jane, open a shocking letter, and more! Austen fans will be delighted by the book’s attention to detail and clever use of original dialog. And the book’s use of super-sturdy board means everyone can enjoy this tale of wit and romance over . . . and over . . . and over again!

I’m totally biased because I’m quite an avid Jane Austen fan (Pride and Prejudice in particular!) but I love this book. There are tons of interesting interactive features that give little hands things to do while I read, which is important because there’s quite a bit of text per page, particularly if you read the excerpts. I love that there are actual quotes for the book! All that being said, it’s not one of my toddler’s favorites, just one of mine.

This is the perfect board book for you if you’re a Jane Austen lover! So fun that it has quotes, and the illustrations are cute and a pretty great resemblance to the cast in the Keira Knightley version. I think it covered pretty well the plot and had a lot of fun details and interactive abilities. I’m not sure that this would be the most popular choice for little ones, though they might love it for all of the interactive parts, but I think adults will enjoy reading this to their little ones as it has more dialogue for them. :)

David also took two years off school to serve a church mission to Thailand, which was probably the most formative experience of his life.
