Book Jacket Summary
Classics never go out of style—that’s what makes them classic. Cozy Classics is a new board book series that presents well-loved stories to children aged 0+. Every classic in the series will be condensed to 12 baby-friendly words, and each word will appear alongside a photograph of needle felted objects. Pride and Prejudice is a timeless romance about how a bad first impression can turn into love, and one of the world’s most beloved classics. Now this classic can be shared with your youngest children.

My Thoughts
Cutest series ever and I mean it! Again, I do have to say that this really is not something that little kids will seek out but their parents or other adults might. This one in particular has so many fans in the adult and teen world that this adorable book will sell very well. I did smile fondly as I turned the pages and just about died of cuteness several times. My favorite scene is the classic look at Elizabeth walking through the muddy fields to the Bingley's house. It is the scene on the cover, so please glance up to see how adorable it is with the mud on her skirts.
The book is made up of twelve words, including the words muddy, friends, sisters, dance, mean, and sick. I love this book and the concept behind the series, especially the words they have to choose to make up a story. They did an excellent job with Pride and Prejudice!
