"We received review copies of four titles in the Baby University series by Chris Ferrie: Rocket Science for Babies, General Relativity for Babies, Quantum Physics for Babies, and Newtonian Physics for Babies. Though the titles suggest they are for babies, I was hoping for basic science titles for Miss Muffet, who tends to enjoy nonfiction and scientific principles. The images from the books that I saw prior to receiving the books looked so promising, but I have to admit to being disappointed by the titles themselves. While they work fine for introducing unfamiliar vocabulary to babies (something Every Child Ready to Read is all about), neither of my kids understood a word of any of the books. When I asked Miss Muffet what the books were about, she said, "Circles?" (Dots are used throughout the books to illustrate different concepts. Miss Muffet did not pick this up.) I think the only concept she grasped was gravity, and that was because we'd just read a Let's Read and Find Out About Science book called Gravity is a Mystery.

I so wanted these to be more than novelty books, even if they weren't exactly suitable for babies, but the concepts are really just too complicated for early childhood, at least in the way they are presented here. These would be fun gag gifts for new parents who work in science fields, but otherwise, despite being visually very appealing, they're not worth buying for little kids.

This review also appears on my blog, Read-at-Home Mom.

" Our library copy is dual language: English and Chinese. Chris Ferrie, a Canadian father of young children, uses simple illustrations and simple text to explain physics to very young children. Colours in the text match the colours of the different parts of the atom in the illustrations. I'm sure my grandkids are too young for this, but I learned a lot about electrons and how they work! " said.

" I bought this for my friend's 15 mos old and it is fabulous.. I'm still not a quantum physicist but it is fun. " said.

" So fun and simplistic, easy to understand, this series really helps one to understand advanced science in a basic way. " said.

" Bought this one for a friend’s baby shower. Love the concept of explaining a subject we perceive as “so complicated” in terms that a baby can understand. " said.

" I still totally don't understand Quantum Physics. And I'm 43. " said.

" Pretty simplified model as a solid foundation. " said.

" I read this to my one month old during her morning feeding. She seemed to be so into it she wasn't even drinking her milk. " said.
