Review Quotes

"Alice in Wonderland: A Colors Primer" by Jennifer Adams and illustrated by Alison Oliver

This is one of the greatest board book series out there. Designed to introduce the literary classics to the youngest readers, these books are delightfully fabulous. The two most recent, "Alice in Wonderland" and "Jane Eyre," are marvelous, but also check out the first two, "Romeo and Juliet" and "Pride and Prejudice." They are written by Utah's Jennifer Adams and beautifully illustrated by the talented Alison Oliver.

If you like your Alice in Wonderland editions bright, light on words, and difficult to destroy when thrown around the nursery, then check out Jennifer Adams' new board book...The art by Alison Oliver is very bubbly and stylish, each page illustrating text such as "orange cat," "blue caterpillar," or "red hearts."--Jennifer Adams "Lewis Carroll Society of North America" (3/14/2012 12:00:00 AM)

The little board books are just the cutest books I think I have ever seen...The simplicity of these books is its genius.-- "Kid Lit Reviews" (4/2/2012 12:00:00 AM)

The Alice in Wonderland color primer provides a refreshing deviation from Adams' other BabyLit primers, all of which focus on counting. The many peculiar characters in Carroll's novel, such as the red Queen of Hearts and the time-conscious white rabbit, lend themselves to a natural introduction to colors. The literary ties are creative, but the illustrations take these primers to the next level and make them shine. Alison Oliver's illustration style is distinct with its bright colors and array of patterns that are sure to capture the attention and imagination of children. Even if parents are not well-versed in the literature, the images alone make these primers a worthwhile purchase.--Whitney Butters "Deseret News" (3/3/2012 12:00:00 AM)

These are adorable books and ones that will be sure to interest your child with their bright colors, fun illustrations and simple words! Think about putting them in the next basket you make up for a baby shower!-- "Bless Their Hearts Mom" (3/27/2012 12:00:00 AM)

These are the sweetest board books I have ever laid eyes on! Looking at these book-covers via online does not do them any justice at all! The coloring is gorgeous - vibrant and eye catching! The quality of these books just blows my mind - they are so sturdy, and definitely kid friendly. But what I adore the most - the theme to these books! I am a huge Alice in Wonderland fan - all of the main characters make their appearance in this book, each taking a turn teaching your bundle of joy different colors through Alice in Wonderland inspired illustrations. And these pictures are all so cute and captivating!--Margie Cortina "Bumbles and Fairy Tales" (3/20/2012 12:00:00 AM)

These books are wonderful! They are very sturdy and the pages are thick and easy for little chubby hands to turn. The illustrations are done by Alison Oliver and she did a great job. The colors are beautiful as well as the pictures.--Sherrie Plummer "" (3/16/2012 12:00:00 AM)

This book is a excellent read and my daughter loved it. The pages are really colorful and full of adventure, she couldn't put the book down.--Stephaine Szostak "" (3/16/2012 12:00:00 AM)

This book is beautiful and simple...The pages seem to come to life with the art and details of it. The pictures come to life on the pages and I know that any young child would be stimulated by all the multiple colors and pictures that are within these pages. I loved it!!--Laura Moore "The Reading Nook" (4/2/2012 12:00:00 AM)

This is an adorable book. It is very clearly made for pre-toddlers though so do not expect the traditional story line. Its like a picture of a character and the page would say "Green hat" and the next page is simple wording like "purple cat" and etc. I purchased this for my grand-daughter who has an Alice in Wonderland themed nursery. Very cute book and the illustrations are adorable.

Doesnt tell the story, just has excerpts from certain parts (black rabbit hole, orange cat) that emphasize colors. However, I suppose you could improv the story using the book?
