Jane Eyre for Toddlers
Many parents are responding the latest from child-development experts who suggest “that children can display aesthetic preferences even while they are crawling and eating puréed foods.”
However, there are those who remain dubious about these adaptations:
“Cindy Hudson, a guidebook author and mother of two in Portland, Ore., who runs a Web site suggesting books for parents to read with their children, said she doubted a baby would ‘benefit intellectually’ from being exposed to Tolstoy or the Brontë sisters.
Still, ‘anything that encourages that interaction between babies and parents is a good thing’ she said. ‘That’s where the learning and the bonding comes from.'”
