" This book is well-done. It is straightforward and does not try to be humorous. I would say it's more a book for parents than for babies. If you're tired of reading your one-year-old Doggies for the fiftieth time, take a break with this. Read this to your child who doesn't know what you're talking about. My 2.5-year-old was a little too old for this: he wasn't terribly interested in anything except the ball. " said.

" Note: I received a digital review copy through NetGalley. " said.

" This is a fun idea to appeal to parents of little ones, though the book is made for children. The simple illustrations will appeal to babies. This would be a good gift for new parents who love science. I admit that even with the childlike explanation of relativity, I was still confused!I received an ARC from NetGalley. " said.

" great book I think is more geared towards the science loving parents more than the baby. It is simple with simple illustrations so your baby will enjoy it.I received a copy from netgalley. " said.

"This book does what it says on the tin. It explains general erlativity for everyone, but since it is a board book, it is for babies.

This is no Goodnight Moon. This is not something you will read to your kid over and over again. Think of it more as a Go the F**k to Sleep" sort of book, one more for the parents than for the kids. Think of it as a pet rock of the the board books. It is cute, it is well done, it says what it is going to do, and apparently this is not the first one he has written.

So, recommend tho those who want a pet rock, I mean a board book about general relativity. I have rated it four stars because it does explain general relativity very well. And it is a cute book.

Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review

"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.

" This seems like a gag book at first, but it's honestly a pretty good overview of the basics, and my toddler really liked the simple illustrations and interesting vocabulary. " said.

" I received this book for free. It is a simple book that explains science terms at a level young children can understand. " said.
