BabyLit | April Lit List

Each month I feature a curated Lit List of all my favorite children's books by theme. This month I'm so excited to be sharing a collection that Olivia and I have both loved from Day 1 -- BabyLit books. I have teamed up with BabyLit to feature their two newest releases as well as host a giveaway! 


I initially came across BabyLit books during my first pregnancy, and I immediately fell in love with the concept. If you're unfamiliar with them, BabyLit is a fashionable way to introduce your child to the world of classic literature. Each board book is based on a classic work, such as The Secret Garden, Pride & Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet and more. They are all themed primers, meaning they take concepts and characters from the classics and teach children about basic ideas -- colors, numbers, animals, the weather & more. The books have outstanding illustrations, all done by Alison Oliver, that capture a child's attention from the very first page. These are books you absolutely can judge by their covers, because they are so striking and vibrant that you can't help but know you are about to open and read some of the best children's books ever written!


Over the past two years, we have collected nearly every BabyLit book there is! Our two favorites are of course the newest releases - The Secret Garden & Don Quixote. In high school I completed four years of Spanish, traveled to Spain and lived with a family there and then continued on to receive my minor in it in college, so I especially love that I am able to teach Olivia a little bit of Spanish through the book. I knew The Secret Garden would be a huge hit with my tiny gardener, as she is a lover of all things floral. It is the absolute perfect book for Spring!


Other favorites include The Jungle Book {an animals primer}, Jane Eyre {a counting primer}, Sense & Sensibility {an opposites primer} & The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn {a camping primer} / You know how toddlers love to read the same books over and over and over a thousand times? Well, these are books I actually look forward to reading with Olivia and even after the 10th read-through, I am never bored with the words or the brilliant illustrations.
