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