Teach Your Baby Science - Really!
Reviewed in the United States on August 13, 2018
I loved this book, and so did my 1 and 3-year-old children.
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!
