"WUTHERING HEIGHTS: A Weather Primer,” "SENSE AND SENSIBILITY: An Opposites Primer" and “MOBY-DICK: An Ocean Primer," by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver, Gibbs Smith, $9.99 each (ages 1 and up)
For parents who want to help share classics with young children, Jennifer Adams has three new board books in her BabyLit series.
“Wuthering Heights: A Weather Primer” plays off the “wuthering” description and has simple descriptions of about a dozen different types of weather from sunny to snowy. Artist Alison Oliver shows a view of the house in each different time with the characters outside — with an umbrella in “Rainy” and with laundry out in “Sunny.”
“Sense and Sensibility: An Opposites Primer” uses characters, places and other times from the Jane Austen novel to share contrasting things, like Norland Park is big and Barton Cottage is little.
“Moby-Dick: An Ocean Primer” goes through common ocean and shore elements looking through the lens of “Moby Dick” and a few quotes from the book, too. It includes a few types of fish, harpoons, whales and stars.
Adams’ has a light touch in creating ties back to the original works that fans of the books will appreciate.
Oliver’s artwork includes many contrasting and bright colors that are simple and appropriate for these adorable books.
