Baby Lit have sent Luther some illustrated classics to expand his mind (and to keep his mummy sane)
I made a huge effort to read to Luther whilst he was really tiny. He didn’t appear to be taking that much interest. However, now that he’s older he goes to his bookcase and pulls out the books he likes, and then shoves them in my face to read to him. I love all of the Baby Lit books we have. Luther certainly has his favourites!
As anyone knows, who has read the same book over and over again, it’s good to like what you are repeating. The Baby Lit books are beautifully illustrated, condensed classics. They are witty and clever. The artwork is fantastic; it’s unusual and really well thought out. The colours and textures are super.
My favourites are The Odyssey, which is a book focused around monsters such as Scylla and the Cyclops; and Dracula, a counting primer where rats and gravestones feature. What’s not to like?
Luther loves Frankenstein – which teaches about body parts as you build your monster – and Treasure Island which is a shapes primer. Whilst reading the former I’ve been able to watch Luther understand which word relates to his mouth, hands, feet and eyes. It’s quite amazing! The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is greatly enjoyed for the frogs and birds depeicted within it. I think I’ll be a fun one to introduce him to the concept of camping.
The board books are robust so pages aren’t going to get ripped out by over eager little hands! I’ve not tired of reading them yet and I’ve read them a lot. An awful lot!
For when he’s a little bigger we have some ABC stroller cards and a Baby Lit memory game to enjoy.
L is for Luther.
