This week I received a special gift in the mail from a friend. It was a little children’s board book, but what got me most was the title!
It is a basic baby’s counting book, using some common items mentioned in Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice.
It is so cute!
My favourite page is the one showing four marriage proposals!
Mr Collins to Lizzy: “We Shall Marry!” “No Way!”
Mr Darcy to Lizzy (first time): “Marry Me?” “NO!”
Mr Darcy to Lizzy (second time): “Please Marry Me?” “YES!”
Mr Bingley to Jane: “Will You Marry Me?” “Oh Sure!”
This book is one of the BabyLit series, by Jennifer Adams, which tailors literature classics for pre-reading young children. Some of the other books in this series are: Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, and Alice in Wonderland. They are published by Gibbs Smith and illustrated by Alison Oliver.
Baby’s literature! This is my cup of tea!
