The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Goodnight Moon are great kids books; staples of the bookcase in every home. But, as fun as they are, these aren’t the type of books that will really get your kid ahead in life. Want to know what will get your kid ahead in life (apart from group therapy)? Jane Austen. Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice formatted for kids to learn numbers, to be exact.
A BabyLit Board Book by Jennifer Adams with illustrations by Alison Oliver, this adorable, whimsical, historically-correct, cutesy, enter-your-own-high-praising-adjective is simply a must-have for Austen fans, and parents who want their kids to grow up knowing the classics. A real helper when it comes to future Trivial Pursuit nights, your offspring can show off their knowledge to friends who were only given fanciful fairytales to read.
The book is great for little hands and sturdy enough for any baby or toddler’s playroom, being unrippable and chewable (if your kiddo has a penchant for gnawing on the classics).
But what’s inside the book, you ask? We know, we know—the only thing that matters is what’s on the inside. Numbers. Wild illustrations. Count the fancy ball gowns, the sisters, the marriage proposals, the houses, the rich gentleman—the entire story is covered in this boardbook that’s just as charming as Mr. Darcy himself.
Can’t say no to this one.
