    1. Try not to judge me too hard, but I fell in love with these adorable baby board books while babysitting this past weekend, and I was deeply saddened that the children I had knew how to count and stuff. I'm a sucker for things like this, too, even though I don't want to be, and the sampler-esque feel to the Austen cover and the paper doll-style art of both books just charmed me from the start.So, how nuanced can a counting book be, right? About half of each book is specific to the story (four mar [...]

    2. No child is too young to meet Jane Austen and her masterpiece, Pride and Prejudice. In this picture book, the characters and basic plot of Pride and Prejudice are turned into a "counting primer" (one of those picture books where on the first page you're introduced to the number 1, on the second to the number 2, etc.). Thus we have "1 English Village", "2 Rich Gentlemen" (Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, of course), 5 sisters, and many other delights. Number 10 is one of the funniest--and most fitting- [...]

    3. Well apart from the fact that a bored and bright kid can have an awesome time with every thing that offers colorful illustrations (from food wrappings to street signs) I think that "Little Miss Austen" is one of the worst counting books I've come across. It comes highly recommended as a baby shower present for Darcy-crazy young mums. And since I love my Austen novels a lot, I thought I had to see for myself how the book, that claims to introduce the classic lovestory to the youngest of all read [...]

    4. The Pride & Prejudice adaptation is very cute. The art is lovely. The concept is simple and the characters, of course, beloved. Perhaps the best of the series.

    5. Cute. When it counts elements from the actual Pride and Prejudice story (5 sisters, for example), I loved it, but toward the higher numbers the counted items got more generic and less fun (like 8 horses). Still, a cute way to incorporate the classics into early learning.

    6. So, this is a counting book that tells the story of Pride and Prejudice, it's pretty friggin' awesome. Some highlights2 rich gentlemen (Bingley and Darcy, of course), 5 sisters, and, my favorite 1010,000 pounds a year! If you love Pride and Prejudice, you will love listen to your tiny tot count out the highlightsgood timesgood times

    7. So adorable and fun! Little ones can enjoy illustrations of ball gowns and horses and ten thousand pound bank notes, Mommy (or Daddy) will appreciate knowing the story they really mean in Austen's story ;-)

    8. As I stated in a previous review of a different BabyLit book This is a children's board book that contains one word and one illustration, on every other page, throughout the entirety of the book. I attempted to give this book a fair chance; and failed. ONE: I cannot understand why there is a children's adaptation of Pride & Prejudice. In my opinion, there should not be. TWO: One word and illustration on every other page does not a book make. Even if it is a board book. It is just strange and [...]

    9. So, this is flippin' adorable. I bought it while looking for kindle books to read to my 2 year old, and as soon as my Austen obsession collided with this baby verson, I HAD to have it! It's a counting book, and Baby loooooved counting the pictures with me, as I told her a little about each thing we counted, adding to this book with tiny details from the original. And we had FUN! I intend to buy her the actual board book for her little book collection we've started. I also fully intend to grab mo [...]

    10. I have read all of Jane Austen works, many biographies, nonfiction, and oodles of sequels — but an Austen-inspired children’s board book? Whoa! Curious? I was. Don’t ya just love the creativity that our Jane inspires?When I first heard about Pride & Prejudice: Little Miss Austen (BabyLit) by Jennifer Adams, the same author who wrote the lovely Remarkably Jane: Notable Quotations on Jane Austen, I was quite intrigued. Would this be a retelling of one of my favorite classic novels for ve [...]

    11. If I could, I would own every edition of Pride and Prejudice ever printed in the English language. While I do have annotated, hardcover, paperback, tradeback, ebook, and audiobook versions of my favorite novel, I never thought I'd see the day when a board book would be made from Jane Austen's work. I've read a large number of board books and picture books to my sister's children over the years, and I obviously have my favorites. But I think I've now got a new book to add to that list.Little Miss [...]

    12. Unlike other titles in this humorous BabyLit board book series, this book is less imaginative and far less engaging than other works. From one to ten, readers count Bennett sisters, soldiers, and even bills, all relating to _Pride and Prejudice_. And, of course, there are plenty of Mr. Darcy references in this text. I do appreciate how some of the objects are slightly different from the others (for instance, one fancy ball gown is upside down), but counting objects that loosely relate the novel [...]

    13. I feel torn about this book. It's cute, sure. But babies need to be introduced to Pride & Prejudice? Also's more than a little sexist (10,000 pounds and pretty dresses?). Aren't counting books about animals or something more productive to learning?I can see this being huge for Austen fans and, like I said, it is cute. But not for me or any babies that I might have in the future

    14. I LOVE THIS BOOK! I love Jane Austen but haven't been able to read a long book because I have young kids. This was just too cute and introduced my 5 year old to Austen. I adore the pictures. They are cartoon like, but very girly with pinks and rose and white. My 3 year old loved the dresses. The baby loves turning the pages. I was so excited when I found this at the library now I need my own copy.

    15. This is the second book in this series we've received as a gift which means we have excellent friends :-) The pictures are great and the subjects are wonderful 'in jokes' based on Pride & Prejudice. I think my favourite is '4 marriage proposals'. We will enjoy this book alongside our Alice in Wonderland book of colours.

    16. Poor subject for a children's book.Poorly executed. Bored Emerson to the point of shoving it aside for a book about trucksOKMark gave this book a 1 star. Now, for the mommy review. This book is awesome! It is a really cute counting book: "4 marriage proposals.". But Emerson couldn't get into it because he wanted to read about trucks. This book is a 5 star book.

    17. Lovely artwork. I think this was the one that was 6 or 7 trees, and I just wanted to look at those drawings of trees forever. I do wish that the two Jane Austen books in the babylit series weren't both counting book. Jane Austen books are hard enough to tell apart as it is.

    18. Absolutely brilliant interpretation of one of my favorite Bollywood inspired films. Pride and Prejudice takes you through your numbers and is just perfect for people who don't have the time to suffer through the original text.

    19. OMG, this was so cute and adorable. Loved the illustrations and while it was hard to pick a favorite picture, the dashing young redcoats might win the day

    20. Tee hee. This is a counting board book using themes from Pride and Prejudice. I got a good giggle out of it, and my two-year-old girl likes it because it's pink. Win-win.

    21. The essence of Pride and Prejudice distilled into a counting book for the preschool set is delightful. This is one of my very favorite board books.

    22. I'm going to say what I've said about Babylit's other boardbooks: They're wonderful.My two year old granddaughter has never shown any interest in books unless they are pop-ups or play music. Sure, I'd like that too if it were classical! Then one day I brought out four BabyLit Books; classics. All of a sudden she's animated and reading P&P or what she thinks it says. Well this is a first!I see why she loved the book. Visual is important if you want to capture the attention of a toddler. The i [...]
