Are you a book nerd like me? Now you can introduce your favorite classic stories to your children with KinderGuides, engaging picture books that retell literary classics for kids.

I LOVE THESE BOOKS!

But I was skeptical at first. I wondered why would kids want to read these stories because I imagined the retellings to be too complex.

That was not the case.

(In fact, reading these, I wished I’d had them in college to give me a little help with my English major homework.)

I think you’ll be impressed at how engaging and relatable the authors made first three KinderGuides: The Odyssey by Homer, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, and Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte!

It’s seriously awesome to share our favorite classic literature with kids using the KinderGuides picture books from Moppet Publishing!

The Odyssey by Fredrick Colting and Melissa Medina with illustration by Yeji Yun shares the main events of Odysseus’s epic journey home. As you know, it took 20 years of challenges for him to return home. After the long war against Troy, Odysseus and his men start for home but can’t seem to catch a break. A cyclops traps them, giants gobbles his men up, and Circe turns his men into pigs, just to name a few of the issues. No doubt kids will enjoy Odysseus’ colorful, magical adventures. The writing is skillful, rich with voice and humor, just right for young readers.

KinderGuides The Odyssey is filled with vibrant, colorful illustrations that depict the action. Older kids will enjoy taking the 8 question quiz, reading the key words, and reading the story’s analysis all at the back of the book.

Written with lots of personality, Kinderguide’s Pride and Prejudice shares the Jane Austen story of Elizabeth and Darcy in an engaging, delightful way. For example, after learning Wickham is a “bit of a trickster” the book goes on to say, “Hmm…perhaps Darcy isn’t so bad after all?” Similar questions peppered throughout Pride and Prejudice catch kids’ attention, especially readers who are just hearing the story for the first time.

Charlotte Bronte wrote the classic novel Jane Eyre. Now KinderGuides is bringing it to children as a beautifully illustrated Jane Eyre picture book. The original story is complex but the authors, Melissa Medina and Fredrik Colting, deftly translate it into a kid-friendly, spellbinding story that you’ll enjoy reading with your children. Plus, who doesn’t love a happy ending? Especially after all that drama!
