Cozy Classics: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Jack and Holman Wang

Cozy Classics by Jack WangSo this is another board book in the Cozy Classics series.

Other books presented are Cozy Classics: War and Peace, Cozy Classics: Les Miserables,Cozy Classics: Emma,Cozy Classics: Pride and Prejudice,Cozy Classics: Moby Dick,The Cozy Classics: Oliver Twist,Cozy Classics: Jane Eyreand Cozy Classics: The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

Wow! I just wish I had these years ago, they are too awesome!

One classic. Twelve words. Twelve needle felted scenes.

Some of the words/scenes from this book are RIVER (cover picture), SCARED, MAN, GO, TALK, THINK, TRAPPED, PAL, PLAN, RUN and FREE. Really clever because each word and accompanying felt scene tells a vital part of the classic story and they're words that are sometimes complicated to explain the meaning of without showing the action and this book does that so well.

As I mentioned in my review of Tom Sawyer: the book can be read as any other board book just teaching words by flipping pages or the story itself can be shared (providing the parent/guardian knows the story) and the pages flipped at the appropriate time as the story is shared aloud. The latter, I think, is the best way to enjoy these books.

Love this series!
