Editorial Reviews

Deseret News
The "Alice in Wonderland" color primer provides a refreshing deviation from Adams' other BabyLit primers, all of which focus on counting. The many peculiar characters in Carroll's novel, such as the red Queen of Hearts and the time-conscious white rabbit, lend themselves to a natural introduction to colors.

The literary ties are creative, but the illustrations take these primers to the next level and make them shine. Alison Oliver's illustration style is distinct with its bright colors and array of patterns that are sure to capture the attention and imagination of children. Even if parents are not well-versed in the literature, the images alone make these primers a worthwhile purchase.

If you like your Alice in Wonderland editions bright, light on words, and difficult to destroy when thrown around the nursery, then check out Jennifer Adams' new board book...The art by Alison Oliver is very bubbly and stylish, each page illustrating text such as "orange cat," "blue caterpillar," or "red hearts."

"Alice in Wonderland: A Colors Primer" by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver

This is one of the greatest board book series out there. Designed to introduce the literary classics to the youngest readers, these books are delightfully fabulous. The two most recent, "Alice in Wonderland" and "Jane Eyre," are marvelous, but also check out the first two, "Romeo and Juliet" and "Pride and Prejudice." They are written by Utah's Jennifer Adams and beautifully illustrated by the talented Alison Oliver.

My ten-month-old adores her newest book -- the bright colors, the vivid images. And her mother appreciates having a board book she enjoys too. Great graphics that inspire silly voices -- Whoooo Aaaaaare Youuuuuu? -- and appeal to all ages.

My two year-old daughter absolutely LOVES these books, and Alice in Wonderland is her favorite. She goes through it over and over, excitedly pointing out the colors and characters.

I can't even take it. How precious are these books?? The Baby Lit books are described as "A Series of Board Books for Brilliant Babies," but I think parents (any adult, for that matter) would get just as much enjoyment out of them as babies would, if not more. The books incorporate some of the major aspects of each story and bring them to life with charming illustrations. Little Master Carroll, or "Alice in Wonderland, a colors primer," highlights most of the major characters from the original story and presents them in a way that even children unfamiliar with the story would still enjoy. The colors are bold and recognizable; I can just picture little fingers excitedly pointing out the white rabbit and the red hearts. This fun, beautiful Baby Lit book will be staying on my shelf until I have little readers of my own! { I received this book and Little Miss Bronte for free in exchange for an honest review. Full review originally posted to my blog, PidginPea's Book Nook. }

I love the modern graphic style of Alice in Wonderland. It is a board book for kids that uses the characters and themes from the Carroll classic to teach about colors. From the orange (Chesire) cat to the (Queen of) red hearts, Alice in Wonderland is filled with vivid images that allude to key scenes from the book. It is delightful to see the wacky characters from Wonderland in this new light. Well done!

Prepare for the gush. Look at those covers, the entire books are like that. I love reading picture books with my boys, but you rarely find something that tickles your own personal style so much. Alice in Wonderland is a color primer, with the colorful characters and colors on every page. Though the blue catepillar is not really "blue" and the orange cat with the pink background is hard to see. But the pictures are so cute, and Ivan adores it. He even gets it, the 2 I thought would be difficult he nailed the first try. Little Miss Bronte Jane Eyre has this baby-goth thing going on. I fell in love! I have got to give Bronte another chance. I have lumped her in with Jane Austen...perhaps that isn't fair. Jane Eyre is a counting primer. It has the number and then the item being counted. On the other side is a gorgeous picture. "1 GOVERNESS" AND "6 CHALKBOARDS" up to 10. The chalkboards have some lessons written on them. At 10 there are books numbered 1 through 10, Gulliver's Travels is the only title...I wonder if that classic was mentioned within Jane Eyre. I'd have to look up when each was written. So, get these for your baby? They won't teach your kids to love the great classics, but they will be educational and eye catching just the same. Your little ones will enjoy them. Just ask Ivan, who is pulling me away from the computer as I type begging me to read them again, which I am now going to do!

How cute are these books? Seriously! Baby Lit Books take these well known classics and turn them into something that every baby would love. The pictures are bursting with character and color. They teach counting and colors. Reading this book to your child will give them their first introduction to classic literature but in a very fun way. The Baby Lit series includes: Alice in Wonderland, Jane Eyre, Romeo and Juliet, and Pride and Prejudice. I only wish that this series was available when my kids were babies. These books are adorable.
