Read full description of the books:
I like the premise of these books: exploring colors and animals and body parts and weather and so forth through the use of various great works of literature of the past. It certainly adds some interest and flavor for parents who had the misfortune to be English majors. The art is often quite charming, especially in Anna Karenina (the fashion primer), and Pride & Prejudice (a counting primer). That said, elsewhere the execution is uneven. For example, I bought the Jabberwocky mainly to see how they were going to handle the decapitation! Sadly, that part of this very short poem was excised. Now I’m not a monster. I understand why you might excise decapitations: “One two, one two, and through and through, the vorpal blade went snicker snack” — I mean, that is pretty graphic. But who exactly is this book for? If it’s for parents, why skip the only action in the poem? If it’s for kids, a nonsense primer? Really? My child appears to have been a master of nonsense from quite young.
