Nothing Says, "Shut up kid!" like a Board Book by: Tina Buell

I love vacationing with my son; it's the getting there that frazzles my nerves! Reminiscent of The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha, traveling with small children requires nerves of steel! Long flights are especially hard. Managing mood swings and temper tantrums while remaining seated has even me asking the flight attendant, "Are we there yet?"

To avoid toddler apocalypse while in transit, I pack classic novels as a distraction. On our last trip to Nevada my preschooler read both Pride & Prejudice and Romeo & Juliet. Is my son a gifted? If eating boogers and spontaneously screaming the theme song to Fan Boy and Chum Chum is a sign of genius, then yes, yes he is.

What do board books and classic novels have in common? A new series of books from BabyLit! BabyLit board books from Gibbs Smith brings classic writers like Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare to toddlers by creating oversized board books with bright colors and easy to understand words.

Written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver, the BabyLit series brings literature alive for little ones. Some are counting primers, while others like Little Master Carroll: Alice In Wonderland simply share important words that sum up the story.

Board books are a wonderful way to engage your child's interest while traveling; they keep small hands busy and give tiny mouths something to chew on. Nothing says, "Shut up kid!" like a board book.

BabyLit board books are a must for every travel savvy parent's carry-on luggage and a surefire way to bring a smile to even the rudest flight attendant's face. Click here for more great books published by Gibbs Smith.

A special thanks to Gibbs Smith for sending me a copy of Little Miss Austen: Pride & Prejudice and Little Master Shakespeare: Romeo & Juliet to facilitate my review. I received no other compensation, and was not required to express any particular point of view.

My two-year old loves these books! The illustrations are beautiful, and she loves pointing everything out.

I think the counting board book, Romeo & Juliet, is such a fun way to familiarize kids with numbers, as well as some ideas from this classic story by the great William Shakespeare. Romeo & Juliet includes cute artistic renditions of the characters, as well as inside glimpses into the story, like eight love letters from the ill fated couple or an illustrated map of Verona. It also includes enough facts about the story to allow me a chance to talk to my kids about the story, and for them to ask me questions in return, for instance, who is Mercutio? Love it!

My 14 month old daughter got this book for Christmas and we both love it. She loves the cute, colorful illustrations and is enthralled with counting right now; Being an English teacher, I love the subject matter. It's not the actual story of R&J but uses elements from the story to show counting. The book itself is very sturdy (she tends to literally consume her books and this one is still in good shape) and is one of her favorites. I'm definitely going to get her the other books in the BabyLit series...there is one other and I saw that two more are coming out this year. And I hope the author keeps writing more before my daughter is too old for board books.
