Toddlers are being taught to be ready to learn. They practice their letters, count to ten, mimic animal noises, grip a crayon, and identify body parts. In Anna Letitia Barbauld’s groundbreaking Lessons for Children (1778– 79), mothering is intimate and immediate. Barbauld captures the language of real-life mothers and their toddlers, and her simple, lucid prose in a natural idiom is compelling. As Sarah Trimmer would later write of Barbauld’s Lessons, before its publication everything for little children had been written in diminutive font and too often in miniature books.
