A Christmas Carol: BabyLit Colours Primer

A Christmas CarolHow often do you come across board books which are stylish, über cool, and just a whole lot of fun?

This delectable selection of BabyLit board books is designed to help little ones familiarise themselves with the tricky business of numbers and colours ~ but ~ wait for it …. whilst immersing them in the world of literary delights such as A Christmas Carol …

or Jane Eyre …

or Pride and Prejudice …

*sigh* … how much better are these than the ‘red ball’ options?! Each sturdy board book takes a classic work of literature as its theme to teach either colour or numbers.

What do we love about these? These books will continue to hold attention long after the colours or numbers have been mastered. The illustrations are just fabulous – vibrantly eye catching with an intelligent attention to detail. Spot the $ signs on Scrooge’s PJs, or the snippets from the original text appearing in Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice.

Vibrant illustrations capture elements from each of the original novels, in order to provide a more intriguing backdrop to teach the basics.


Count the candlesticks in Jane Eyre, the gentlemen in Pride and Prejudice, or the castles in Dracula.
