Book Review Of “Lit For Little Hands Pride And Prejudice” Text Adaption From Brooke Jorden Adapted From Jane Austen @familiustalk
To be fond of dancing was a certain step towards falling in love. —Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
Filled with interactive wheels and pull-tabs and lavishly illustrated, Lit for Little Hands: Pride and Prejudice is an unprecedented kid’s introduction to Jane Austen’s beloved classic novel. Unlike many board books that tackle the classics, Lit for Little Hands tells the actual story in simple, engaging prose. Goregous pastoral illustrations transport the reader to the fields and estates of Lizzy’s England, while tons of interactive elements invite kids to spin the dancers at the ball, care for Jane, open a shocking letter, and more! Austen fans will be delighted by the book’s attention to detail and clever use of original dialog. And the book’s use of super-sturdy board means everyone can enjoy this tale of wit and romance over . . . and over . . . and over again! (From Company Website)
Thank you to Familius for sending us this free book, in exchange of an honest review. All opinion are our own.
Just like yesterdays book, this one is interactive, featuring actual text from the classic book, mixed with fun modern text from the author. This was another favorite with my guys, I think my son Gavin loved it a bit more than his twin Liam. He actually slept with it for a couple of nights, so it shows a bit more wear than Alice. Again, the text was fun, and fresh, the colors vibrant, and playful. The tabs, wheels, and sliders made for a great reading experience, and a great way to get kids involved in story-time. I will be adding more of these books to our library. Great way to get them to appreciate classic literature at a young age.
