July Lit List | BabyLit

One of my favorite qualities about Olivia is her deep love of books; I loved reading books to her during my pregnancy and as a newborn. Ever since I can remember, books have been her very favorite thing. Even now, the first thing she does when she gets out of bed in the mornings is go straight to her bookshelf and choose a stack for us to read before breakfast or for her flip through on the couch while I'm cooking and she's munching on cheerios.

I've shared before how much we love books through both my blog and #BlessedNestLitList series on instagram. One of our favorite companies for modern and stylish children's books is hands down BabyLit -- if you haven't heard of them yet, you will. They feature a series of board books based on classic Literature, such as Pride & Prejudice, Romeo & Juliet, Treasure Island and more. Using these works as a foundation, BabyLit transforms them into easy to understand primers for babies and children, based on concepts such as colors, numbers, opposites, and more. 

I'm so excited to be partnering with BabyLit to share their newest releases, including the classic works of Emma {An Emotions Primer} and Treasure Island {A Shapes Primer}, as well as their new series of All Aboard Books in collaboration with Lucy Darling Shop, including All Aboard California {A Landscape Primer}, All Aboard New York {A City Primer} and All Aboard Paris {A French Primer} 

One of Olivia's favorites from BabyLit's last release remains Don Quixote, which is a Spanish primer. I studied 6+ years of Spanish throughout high school and college and lived in Spain so it's one of my favorites as well. She loves hearing foreign languages being spoken, so naturally All Aboard Paris ranks high on her list from the new collection.

One of my favorite parts about all classic BabyLit books are the gorgeous illustrations by Alison Oliver. They are bright, bold and attention-grabbing, even for the youngest of bookworms. Both Emma and Treasure Island are right up her alley, especially since she is now learning to recognize and name shapes. Emma is perfect as a child begins to understand their feelings and what it means to be happy, sad, surprised or angry. I think so many times our little ones know they are feeling a certain way but are unsure (or unable) of how to express it. Via loves looking at the character's faces from Emma and gets sad when they are sad and giggles when they are happy. A perfect new addition to our collection.

AND because we love BabyLit books so much, I'd love to give away a set of two to one of you! Head over to my instagram @blessednestblog to enter! The giveaway runs from Thursday, July 30 through Wednesday, August 5. The winner will be announced on the original instagram post and is responsible for contacting A Blessed Nest within 24 hours of being announced or a new winner will be drawn. Of course if you just can't wait, you can shop for all your favorite BabyLit books here! Happy almost-Friday!
