BabyLit Brings Literature Alive for Little Ones

BabyLit Brings Literature Alive for Little Ones - kids travel tips, kids activities tips
Vacationing with young children is both a joy and a pain. Long flights with toddlers is especially hard. Managing mood swings and temper tantrums while remaining seated has even parents asking, “Are we there yet!”       To avoid toddler meltdowns while traveling, many parents pack books for young children to read as distractions. BabyLit board books from Gibbs Smith brings classic writers like Lewis Carroll, Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen, and William Shakespeare to toddlers by creating king-size board books with vivid colors and easy to understand words.
