Thankful For Classic Books For Baby - Baby Lit Board Books


    Do you want to introduce your toddler to classic literary works in a gentle baby-friendly manner? Prior to finding these amazing books, published by Gibbs Smith, I wouldn't have thought it was possible to do so. This week we received four Baby Lit titles in the form of well illustrated, colorful, board books.





     It was so fun to see my little boy checking out renditions of Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, and Pride and Prejudice. His little hands and pudgy wrists gripped the book and he turned the pages with eager anticipation. Literature, learning, love, and life lessons all in the form of happy little  board books.



      These books would be an amazing baby shower present for the literary savvy Mama. I cannot imagine a cooler shower present for a teacher, librarian, or any bibliophile. You can create an even more amazing present by pairing these books with one of Baby Lit's fabulous prints or presenting the books in one of their fun totes.  Another idea is to use these books as stocking stuffers for the special little one if your life.


     I'm excited to be able to offer my readers a chance to win four Baby Lit books courtesy of Gibbs Smith. I am also excited to be participating in the "Thankful for Books" giveaway hop. So, please take a moment to enter to win a set of Baby Lit books and then hop around to check out all of the other blogs and their giveaways as well.

UPDATE: The giveaway has ended. Congrats to the winner,
Liz L.

  1. Kids learn through seeing, sharing and hearing. Read to them.

  2. Teaching our children the importance of reading is giving them REAL knowledge, something that simply switching on a TV can not do. I also think that the bonding time that takes place when reading is essential.

  3. As long as you can read books, you are never alone. Teaching children to love books at an early age is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

  4. I think it is important to read to children to teach them to love to read. To increase their vocabulary and encourage imagination and independent thinking. I've also heard the cadence of your voice while reading can increase your bond with your child. It will also introduce words you wouldn't normally say to them, especially to very young children.

  7. It's vital to read to kids for a number of reasons. One, it instills a love of books. Two, it helps them with motor skills, vocabulary, phonics, reading comprehension, etc. Three, it broadens their imagination and creativity. And four, it bonds you with your child :)

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  8. I think it is important to read to children while they are young because it is a proven fact that the brain of a child under five years old is able to comprehend at a much higher rate. I read to my daughter when she was young and was lucky enough to not only instill a love of reading into her, but she was also very intelligent and aced her reading and comprehension tests. This set would be perfect for my niece, who I am also trying to instill my love of reading into!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to win these amazing books. What a wonderful idea for a giveaway prize.

    Best wishes,

  17. I think reading is very important. I LOVE to read and have since I was young. You learn so much, you are able to use your imagination more and be creative (which is a great ability to have later in life). Reading WITH kids is nice because it helps them learn as well and you are doing productive bonding.

  34. I feel it's really important to read with your children because children mimic what their parents do. If they see their parents reading, that's what they'll naturally want to do. I have grown to learn this myself being a new parent. It helps them develop their vocabulary, and imagination. I love the bonding time that we get every night before bed, even if I can't get her to sit still during the day for stories, at night we can always fit in a couple :)

  36. In addition to the quality time spent with the child, there's the recognition of letters and sounds forming words and sentences. Also, the child develops reading comprehension, sequence, and context.

    Finally, the child gets an alternative to electronic stimulation, gets entertained, and learns so much.

  40. I'm a developmental psychologist- one of the things that is MOST indicative of how well your children do in school is how often you talk to them and/or read to them when they are young. Communication is HUGE when kids are little, and fostering a healthy love of books will last a lifetime :)

  41. The more you read to them, the earlier they talk. Works with my kids!

  42. It is very important to read to your children from the time they are babies and up into their tweens ( basically as long as they will let you!) When they are young it helps them learn to read, opens up worlds for their imagination and creates an environment that encourages a love of reading. The last is the most important gift you can give to your child. When they are older it is a wonderful way to spend time together. I'm so excited about these board books! They are truly awesome in my opinion. terri.moore30@yahoo.com Thank you!

  43. It is essential to read to them in some shape or form from birth on. I spent a career as a literacy specialist for young children and trained teachers and child care providers in this field. I also was a preschool teacher for many years. They not only develop language this way it is an awesome way for them to escape as well as learn about the real world. I could go on and on but I think you get my point.
