So, this is totally not my blog's typical content, but seriously...these are too adorable not to mention. Could there be Russian book added to the line?
Board books! This is a new series called BabyLit. The Jane Eyre is my favorite (that cape!), but both are really neat. Heavy-duty stock makes them indestructable and the colors are much more vintage and cool than typical kid colors. Jane Eyre is for counting, Alice is for colors. How about a Kafka bug one? War and Peace with veggies (peas!)? Can't wait to see the series continue. I've heard there is a Romeo and Juliet board book, possibly it could be a family first aid guide in board book format?
They are published by Gibbs-Smith, but I think the review copies were sent to me by Eric at Quirk.
I already told Eric I'd write about a Russian one if Adams and Oliver put one together... Anna Karenina could count train cars at the station!ReplyDelete

I had not come across these, and I agree, adorable!ReplyDelete
Just found your site via the marvelous Peter Geye and intend to spend some time poking around. Thrilled to see you mention these board books, as I just bought the collection as a baby gift for a couple that knows their classics. The quality is stunning--you really have to handle these to appreciate them!ReplyDelete
