These are the sweetest board books I have ever laid eyes on! 
Looking at these book-covers via online does not do them any justice at all! 
The coloring is gorgeous - vibrant and eye catching! 
The quality of these books just blows my mind - 
they are so sturdy, and definitely kid friendly. 

Here are some sneak peeks and close ups!

But what I adore the most -  the theme to these books! 
I am a huge Alice in Wonderland fan - all of the main characters make their appearance in this book, each taking a turn teaching your bundle of joy different colors through Alice in Wonderland inspired illustrations. And these pictures are all so cute and captivating! 
The same goes for the counting book inspired by Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre! 
Where your child will learn how to count using elements from the classic novel itself! 
The last page, #10, is my most favorite :) 

These books are the perfect way to introduce your little ones to your favorite classics! and for any age too!!! 
My boys are now 5 and 8, they had so much fun looking through both of these - 
they instantly recognized each of the Alice inspired pages and what part of the story it belonged too. And really enjoyed Jane Eyre too, even though they don't know the story yet, they loved the illustrations and what we were counting... did I mention that they're 5 and 8 already, lol! No matter what age, we all know a good book when we see one ;) 

Also available in the A Baby Lit series... 
Little Miss Austen and Little Master Shakespeare.

I have to admit, I will be buying these two books to add to my collection!
Yes, for me! I can't stop looking at them, they're so precious and will look so pretty sitting on my classic literature shelf :)

A big thank you to Gibbs and Smith for sending these to me for review!

What do you think of the concept of these books???
