I recently took a look and read these two board books from the publisher. It is a cute pair of children's board books that I won in a contest a while back.

The Emma book is "an emotions primer." It uses characters from the classic novel to illustrate basic emotions like excited, surprised, angry, and amused. The art is cute, simple, and very colorful using solid colors.

The Treasure Island book is a "shapes primer." It uses characters and locations from the classic novel to teach children about shapes like squares, stars, ovals, and
diamonds. Like the other book, it has nice art.

Both books are nice, simple, and bright. They are cute items to start your kids reading early and give them a bit of classic literature in the process.

4 out of 5 stars.

These books qualify for the following 2017 Reading Challenges:
