Literature for Babies: Baby Lit

I recently received two adorable books in the mail. They are part of the BabyLit series:  “BabyLit is a fashionable way to introduce your child to the world of classic literature.  Visit for more information.”  I strongly believe that even the littlest of babies can enjoy books so these BabyLit books were a perfect choice.

I thought it would be fun to show whether the littles enjoyed these books or not.  The following are photos of me reading to babies 12 -18 months old.

Here I am presenting the title.  I’ve caught the attention of two little ones.

Unconventional Librarian reads Jane Eyre









Then as you can see little Miss Sophia is trying to upstage me!  Never work with kids and dogs, right?

But I can’t help myself. Finally, she gets a copy of the book for herself.

She’s opening it upside down, but that’s ok! She’s getting a feel for how books look and feel. She’s finished with Jane Eyre.  What will she choose next?

Let’s see…

Unconventional Librarian reads Alice in Wonderland

I think it’s Alice in Wonderland by Little Master Carroll!

As you can see, the BabyLit books were a hit with my little ones! I highly recommend these books as the illustrations are beautiful and contagious enough for little ones to enjoy yet older children can follow along a little more closely for a more in-depth reading.

I give these books four paws!








My passion is advocating for diversity in children's and YA literature.

    This is great to know! I teach preschool, and have two sons ages 2 years and 18 months. I will have to check out the BabyLit books. I love classic literature and would love to introduce it to my boys. Thank you for sharing!
