Simple words, sturdy pages, and a beloved story make these books the perfect vehicle for early learning with an erudite twist. Budding bookworms will delight in this clever retelling of the classics made just for them Leo Tolstoy's War and Peace features a dashing soldier, many difficult goodbyes, and the fleeting promise of true love. It's a first words primer for your literary little one The Cozy Classics series is the brainchild of two brothers, both dads, who were thinking of ways to teach words to their very young children. They hit upon the classics as the basis for their infant primers, and the rest, as they say, is history. From Moby Dick to Pride and Prejudice, here are The Great Books of Western Literature for toddlers and their parents in board book form--a little bit serious, a little bit ironic, entirely funny and clever, and always a welcome gift.
