A lovely serendipitous find–we are short-staffed here at the library so I was out in the stacks shelving and came upon this marvel! Pride & Prejudice in a board book! Sweetly sums up the entire story in a dozen pages, one word to a page, accompanied by darling photos of felt characters.
Here’s the synopsis:
Friends. Sisters. Dance. Mean. Sick. Muddy. Yes? No! Write. Read. Walk. Marry.
There’s also a Jane Eyre (which I have also checked out. I just need to find a toddler to read it with me!).
The awesome thing about this is, if read to a child by someone who loves these stories, the emotion and enthusiasm will carry through and that child will “get it” that books and reading are cool.
What’s your favorite book to read aloud to a child?
