This board book was disappointing. I loved the idea of a board book based on one of my favorite classic, Jane Eyre. I mean, hello? I have a daughter named Brontë. We needed this book, right?
I’m not disappointed because it is short (I love the Cozy Classics Pride and Prejudice board book, and it is very succinct!). Jane Eyre: A BabyLit Counting Primer counts to 10, and at least 4 of the illustrations really don’t have much to do with the actual story of Jane Eyre. I mean, it counts insects and trees on two of the pages. Sure, there are probably insects and trees mentioned in the story, but there were so many other things they could have counted (Adele’s dresses, or the fine ladies that visit) that are not scary, but still capture more of the story.
Even so, my girls enjoy looking at the pictures, and I don’t think it will turn them away from enjoying the real classic when they are older.
Have you looked at this book or any more in the BabyLit series? Please let me know in the comments what you think of them!
