Where BabyLit(R) primers teach basic concepts, BabyLit(R) Storybooks are the next step up for both reader age and comprehension, telling stories that give classics new life for the next generation of early readers.
BabyLit(R) primers have become the chic, smart way to introduce babies to the most beloved and readable literature of our time. Gibbs Smith is now presenting a delightful collection of picture books, lovingly designed and crafted for young children. Each book retells a story from the literary canon, bringing a classic to life for an entirely new audience. In The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, preschoolers enjoy a whirlwind adventure to a magical land, meeting new friends, facing dangerous foes, and learning that "there's no place like home." Easy-to-follow, engaging text combined with original quotes and beautiful artwork create a book to be treasured through childhood and beyond. Part of the BabyLit(R) Storybook Series.
