Little Master Carroll: Alice in Wonderland BabyLit Book

Babylit aliceBaby Lit Books are “a fashionable way to introduce your child to the world of classic literature”

My first introduction to the Baby Lit Books was Little Master Carroll: Alice in Wonderland, a color primer by Jennifer Adams with illustrations by Alison Oliver.

A marvelous idea with charming illustrations, Alice in Wonderland is a flexible board book featuring a white rabbit, black shoes, a purple bottle, an orange cat, a blue caterpillar, a brown hat, pink flamingos, red hearts, a green frog and a yellow teapot. 

Except…the blue caterpillar isn’t blue. He’s teal…which looks greenish.

This is obviously a big problem, because, after all, Alice in Wonderland is a color primer.
I have another Baby Lit Book, Little Miss Bronte: Jane Eyre, and its cover is blue. True blue. And believe me, when compared to the green caterpillar and green font that says “blue”…well, there’s a huge difference.

I would have loved to have highly recommended this book; the bottles and the Queen of Hearts actually put a smile on my face.

But as a color primer, I’m afraid I have to advise passing on the Alice in Wonderland BabyLit book…unless you’d like to explain to your confused toddler why “blue” isn’t really “blue”.
