Baby Loves Gravity! (Baby Loves Science) Board book – Illustrated, May 1, 2018
Enhance your purchase
Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this clever board book explores the ups and downs of gravity. When baby drops food from a high chair, why does it fall? Beautiful, visually stimulating illustrations complement age-appropriate language to encourage baby's sense of wonder. Parents and caregivers may learn a thing or two, as well!
With tongue firmly in cheek, the Baby Loves Science series is a fun-filled introduction to STEM concepts for babies, toddlers, and their grown-ups.

Puppy gobbles it up!
Why does a noodle fall?
Because of gravity!
Everything is made of matter. The amount of matter is called mass.
PUPPY: LESS MASS
BABY: MORE MASS
THE EARTH: LOTS MORE MASS

1 Representation: It is difficult to find books that include characters of color as the main characters. Sometimes, the cover of the book will include a character of color, who will then not be dominant in/throughout the story. This book did not disappoint. Although the main character was a person of color, he was just experiencing normal everyday life. That is important for children of color to know that all of the books about their lives are not about slavery/pain/suffering, and it is good for white children to see that children of color are just like them.
2. Science: Children absorb information like sponges, but so many children's books don't take advantage of that. This book actually taught my children about gravity and mass. My three year old has impressed people by casually using that vocabulary in several random conversations. I caught my children excitedly replicating the gravity "experiments" from the book. Finally, it also challenged me to be mindful about pointing out when my kids interact with gravity in their everyday life.
3: Format: It is difficult to find these topics in Board Book format. I liked that my kids can "read" the book on their own without fear of them damaging it.
4: Price: Very affordable! Consistent pricing across the series
Overall, I love this book and am excited to buy more from the series. My only complaint so far is that there aren't any female main characters yet. Girls like science too!
Like many other reviewers of this series, I have noticed a decline in scientific content compared to earlier books such as Baby Loves Quarks. I would recommend the Science for Babies series for those who desire more informative science board books. However, the illustrations in these books are far superior to that series.
These books are just so gosh darn cute that I'd want them for the illustrations alone!
My daughter loves this series. We read them over and over again! I love this newest addition and highly recommend it.
We enjoy every book in this series but if you’re trying to choose which to order- my least favorites are Coding and Quantum Physics, followed by green energy. Favorites are: Gravity, Thermo, Aerospace, Structural and Quarks.
Another excellent series I highly recommend is the Hello World Series! It too contains great illustrations and simple facts!!! My son likes reading Space together with Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering because he can identify Saturn in both and now that he’s 3 is starting to draw other parallels, but we started with all these books around 6 months and he still loves them!!!

We have had this book about a week and my child (3 year old) picks it most nights to read. I walked in on her reading it to her dolly the other day and explaining that the sun had “much more mass” and how much “baby likes gravity as it helps him go down the slide”! I can’t believe how much she understands of it.
I would highly recommend these!
