There’s something exciting and satisfying about sharing a deep love for classic literature with our children and witnessing their enthusiasm in turn grow. I get the same thrill when singing a song from my youth with my kids, or watching remakes and spin-offs of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Jungle Book, an Austen masterpiece, or one of our favourites, The Count of Monte Cristo.
This Classic Lit A to Z Alphabet Primer introduces our littles to characters, places and concepts from those stories we hold dear. A is for Aladdin from Arabian Nights. B is for Becky from A Little Princess. C is for Cheshire Cat from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
Flora has made friends with a flamingo, a penguin, a pair of peacocks, the cutest little chicks, and now a bond is forming between herself and a purple feathered ostrich, in this new book of opposites. Front, back. Hello, goodbye. Hide, seek. Near, far. It seems that making friends is slightly difficult when opposites are involved. Thankfully when they find themselves apart, they alway come back together. Molly Idle has enchanted us yet again in this graceful and expressive fold up and down, in and out board book.
