Baby Girl and I stumbled upon this board book at the library, and let’s just say I’m obsessed.

board book

Let me preface this by saying that I may or may not spend the occasional Saturday night watching the 2005 film adaptation of this classic novel (starring Keira Knightly) on repeat.

I said may or may not.  You’ll never know for sure, so don’t judge me.

This board book is the epitome of adorable.  I kind of want to kiss it…or at least cuddle it a bit.

It is a counting book by Jennifer Adams, with precious illustrations by Alison Oliver, and given its board book-ish nature, it’s probably best suited for the three-and-under crowd.

Here are a few of my favorite pages.

Mr. Darcy is looking quite dapper, no?

The page featuring “4 marriage proposals” kills me.

page 4

That Lizzy was quite the lady to be desired.  Immense were her charms.

And what girl wouldn’t love 9 fancy ball gowns?

I’m partial to number 6 myself.  It would show just the right amount of shoulder, without being scandalous.  The floral embellishments keep it looking demure.

If you’re on the hunt for a Christmas gift for a toddler girl, look no further.  Little Miss Austen: Pride & Prejudice is the sweetest version of Jane Austen’s classic tale that I ever did see, and is certain to captivate that wee one.

[For the avoidance of doubt, I received no compensation or freebies for this review.  I just loved the book!]
