Nothing Says, "Shut up kid!" like a Board Book by: Tina Buell I love vacationing with my son; it's the getting there that frazzles my nerves! Reminiscent of The Impossible Dream from Man of La Mancha, traveling with small children requires nerves of steel! Long flights are especially hard. Managing mood swings and temper tantrums while remaining seated has even me asking the flight attendant, "Are we there yet?" To avoid toddler apocalypse while in transit, I pack classic novels as a distraction. On our last trip to Nevada my preschooler read both Pride & Prejudice and Romeo & Juliet. Is my son a gifted? If eating boogers and spontaneously screaming the theme song to Fan Boy and Chum Chum is a sign of genius, then yes, yes he is. What do board books and classic novels have in common? A new series of books from BabyLit! BabyLit board books from Gibbs Smith brings classic writers like Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare to toddlers by creating oversized board books with bright colors and easy to understand words. Written by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver, the BabyLit series brings literature alive for little ones. Some are counting primers, while others like Little Master Carroll: Alice In Wonderland simply share important words that sum up the story. Board books are a wonderful way to engage your child's interest while traveling; they keep small hands busy and give tiny mouths something to chew on. Nothing says, "Shut up kid!" like a board book. BabyLit board books are a must for every travel savvy parent's carry-on luggage and a surefire way to bring a smile to even the rudest flight attendant's face.
