BabyLit®

BabyLit is the fashionable way to introduce your baby or toddler to the world of classic literature, while they learn numbers, sounds, animals, colors, and more!

Why is BabyLit so popular?

The BabyLit Classic primer boardbook series is based on three proven concepts: bonding between care giver and child, teaching basic concepts, and an introduction to classic literature. These concepts help adults give each child the best start possible to their lifelong education.

BabyLit books are a bonding experience for a care giver and child.

Mothers, fathers, grandparents, and siblings alike will enjoy time spent with their little ones. And the benefit of reading aloud with babies and toddlers has never been more relevant.

“Research over the years has shown that the importance of reading goes far beyond literacy and academic achievements. It’s the enjoyment of reading, developed through shared reading time with parents or care givers that has the greatest positive impact on life outcomes.” -Diana Gerald, Book Trust Former CEO

BabyLit books teach babies and toddlers basic concepts.

BabyLit board books are primers, each teaching a basic concept such as counting, colors, sounds, emotions, or animals.

“Reading aloud is the best way to help children develop word mastery and grammatical understanding, which form the basis for learning how to read.” -Dominic Massaro, Professor Emeritus, Psychology,University of California, Santa Cruz

BabyLit books are a child’s first introduction to classic literature.

Many care givers love the classics, and what better way to both bond with the babies in their lives and share that passion and love of great literature.

“People are realizing that it’s never too young to start putting things in front of them that are a little more meaningful, that have more levels.” -Suzanne Taylor, Creator and Publisher of BabyLit
