Jane Eyre Board Book Alert!

How cute is this? It's baby counting book based on Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. I bought it for my Jane Eyre collection. It counts from 1 to 10 using motifs from the book, like the four towers of Thornfield Hall for the number 4. It's written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver. Part of the BabyLit series, it's so sweet and perfect for Jane-ophiles everywhere.

You can find Alison Oliver's work at her website, pure-sugar.com, and more BabyLit books at the publisher's site here. Other books in the series include Alice in Wonderland, Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet. The books alone or in a set would be so nice for a baby shower gift or a 1 year old birthday. Adorable!

I have the P&P one, and bought a copy for a pregnant friend as well. I may have to collect all of these.

They are fun, but I'm glad they did JE and not WH!
