"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.

" Would be more appropriately titled as Rocket Science for Preschoolers and put into easy reader format. " said.

" A cute board book that introduces some of the most basic concepts of rocket science. my baby might not get much out of it but my 4th grader did. " said.

" I'll be curious to see how a kid responds to this but it works in my opinion. " said.

" So cool. Babies everywhere... read this. " said.

" Disappointingly, this was mostly aerodynamics for babies. It would be better with less material on airfoils and more on the Oberth effect. " said.

" Don't know about babies, but this book was definitely at my level of rocket science! Science explained in basic language and pictures. Good stuff. " said.

" This one was not as good as the other science board books for babies, but it was still simple enough and I learned something. " said.
