Imagine being introduced to classic works of literature written by the great literary artists at the very beginnings of your introduction to reading, well before you’re sprinting through novels. The good people at KinderGuides believe that introducing child friendly versions of classic books to children learning to read will build a natural curiosity for the source material, in turn fostering a healthy appetite for literature.
KinderGuides are responsible for creating these beautiful re-interpretations. The publisher is already looking to go to market with 50 of these books, ranging from Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, to Jack Keruac’s On the Road. Future plans include KinderGuides for great works as The Great Gatsby, Moby Dick, and Pride and Prejudice.
On top of making some of the world’s most powerful stories accessible to kids, all of the profits earned by KinderGuides is donated to children’s literacy programs. The illustrations and the books themselves are beautiful, and the purchase is in support of a noble cause.
I wonder what an 8-year old me would think of On the Road?
