My Cozy Classics: Literary Board Books!

I have just discovered my #1 Christmas Gift Pick for Babies! Too bad I don’t know any babies to give these to!

I’ve just stumbled across these at our local library – a gorgeous little series from Simply Read Books entitled My Cozy Classics by Jack and Holman Wang, which presents famous novels in stripped down fashion with lovingly crafted felted illustrations. Here’s an example:
