Your memories of middle school English literature class either made you cheer or cringe at this post's title. (I have always been Team Literature over Team Math/Science. Give me a one million page paper to write any day over a math test.) We all remember reading Lewis Carroll's epic poem, The Jabberwocky, seventh or eighth grade, and it might seem like an odd choice for a board book. But once you flip through this little book, you will realize that the whimsical, nonsensical rhymes are just perfect for young readers.
The first time you read this to your toddler, they might look at you like you have gone a little crazy. This ain't no mouse music, as Chris Strachwitz might say. I have a feeling that once they catch on, this might be something your toddler will ask for a lot. The great and unusual sounds in the language coupled with the playful graphic illustrations are a fun combination not to mention the sturdy board book pages make this a rough and tumble throw it in your purse or car seat, take to church, to the restaurant, to the store kind of book.
