This book follows the classic tale by Victor Hugo.
Jean Valjean is a French peasant in the 19th century who was arrested for stealing a loaf of bread.
Nineteen years later, he’s allowed out of jail and attempts to rebuild his life but tragedy continuously befalls him and those around him.
Now for the board-book version of the story, we still get the most important scenes of the story but downplays the tragic moments.
So. When I saw this GORGEOUS book in my mailbox to review – I only had one thought running through my head – YES!!!!!
I am a huge fan of the lit for little hands series and Les Misérables did the series proud!
Each board book in the series takes on a famous work of literature and breaks it down to the core story.
So far I’ve read Pride & Prejudice, Alice in Wonderland and A Christmas Carol from the Lit for Little Hands and I’ve adored each of them.
One thing I really liked is how much fun it was to experience Les Mis as a children’s book.
Also, I LOVE that the series has so many fun the embellishments in the books. There’s all kinds of flaps and moveable objects and little illustrated wheels. The pictures truly elevate the book.
All in all, this book was absolutely fabulous and I cannot wait to read another one in the series!!
