Hi friends! I hope you are enjoying a great start to your week! I’m excited for today’s post as it is a spotlight for a very unique type of book! I love the idea of sharing all about Jane Austen’s life, world, and novels with young readers. Whether it is the adorable BabyLit primer series, a Pride and Prejudice themed reprisal of the classic – Goodnight Moon, or a youthful Jane Austen biography – I don’t think it is ever too early to introduce children to this great author! And new on the scene is a book that not only introduces Jane Austen to young audiences, but also provides some hands-on activities for them to enjoy as well!

~ Book Description ~
Jane Austen is one of the most influential and best-loved novelists in English literature. Austen’s genius was her cast of characters—so timeless and real that readers today recognize them in their own families and neighborhoods. Her book’s universal themes—love and hate, hope and disappointment, pride and prejudice, sense and sensibility—still tug at heartstrings today in cultures spanning the globe.
Austen wrote about daily life in England as she knew it, growing up a clergyman’s daughter among the upper class of landowners, providing readers with a window into the soul of a lively, imaginative, and industrious woman in an age when most women were often obscured. Jane Austen for Kids includes a time line, resources for further study, places to visit, and 21 enriching activities.
