Book Synopsis



Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners

Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this book explores the basics of flight - from birds, to planes and rockets - and ties it all to baby's world. 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 introduces highly intellectual science concepts to the littlest learners.



Review Quotes




This colorful new board book uses a simple yet engaging story about a young girl and a bird to explore the wonders of flight, from a bird's flapping wings, to a plane's engines, to a rocket's launch into orbit. In age-appropriate language, Spiro explains how each type of flight works -- and how young children can see those principles at work around them every day. Simple enough to appeal to the littlest listeners, but accurate enough to satisfy an expert, this charming new book is a great way to foster a love of science and a curiosity about the world! Illustrator Irene Chan's bright and stimulating pictures are a perfect complement to this fun story, provide lots of visual interest for pre-readers. It's a unique way to get kids thinking about the "whys" all around them from an early age -- and, as an added bonus for parents, it's a far more interesting read than the average baby board book. Highly recommended for age 0 to 3.
