It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune…must be in want of a wife.
Lizzy Bennet and her four sisters live with their mom and dad.
Their mom is constantly looking for a way to marry off one of the sisters and their dad seems to find that rather funny.
Soon, two handsome rich men move to town and Mrs. Bennet cannot wait for her girls to get married…only the first meeting does not at all to plan.
At the ball, Mr. Darcy flatly refused to dance with Lizzy, even though she had no partner.
Angry and hurt, Lizzy swears off Mr. Darcy and absolutely refuses him when he comes back.
But then, he does something so kind and thoughtful, that she finds herself changing her mind.
Lizzy had been so blinded by her first impressions of Mr. Darcy that she did not see the kindness in his heart.
Everyone has heard of Pride and Prejudice…well everyone except for the knee-high monsters in your life.
And it’s practically a CRIME that the little ankle biters haven’t yet.
Pride and Prejudice is one of my absolute favorite books – I have read it (and reread it) (and rereread it) so many times.
I am absolutely addicted to finding different versions of this book just so I can enjoy it one more time.
And then…I learn that there’s a children’s version. Sign me the bleep up!
I absolutely adored this board book version of Pride and Prejudice.
It was so fun to see that the original quotes were kept in and they worked surprisingly well.
I would have expected that to make the book dense or a bit unmanageable for a younger audience but they choose simple, direct and fabulous quotes for this book.
Also, I loved all the moving pieces. And if I loved it, your kid would love it too (trust me, I have experience in this area).
The various pull-tabs, wheels and flaps were rather sturdy and were fun to move around to boot. I loved the one where you move the lever and Lizzy’s hand wipes at poor, sick Jane’s forehead.
Overall, I quite enjoyed the whole experience – this rendition of Pride and Prejudice is simple, elegant and appealing to children of all ages!
With thanks to the author and Familius for sending me a free copy in exchange for an honest review!
