Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering by Ruth Spiro, illustrated by Irene Chan
Synopsis
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.

Happy book birthday to these two adorable STEM board books, Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering and Baby Loves Quarks!  These books were both published on October 4, 2016 and are available for purchase at a bookstore near you.

*******************************

If you think about it, most things we do on a daily basis can be turned into science, especially when coupled with an explanation.  From pouring water from one cup to another (different sized cups are great for volume), laundry (physics of the spinning clothes), baking (chemistry), bubbles (surface tension), our bodies (biology), and the environment, we can always find something scientific to engage the kids in even when they are babies.

It is never too early to become an engineer or chemist!  With these adorable board books, babies will love learning the basics of flight and particle physics and chemistry giving them the head start they need.  Featuring friendly, simple text, cheerful illustrations and facts, these books are the perfect fun introduction to chemistry, physics and engineering.

My kids and I adore this Baby Loves Science series of books.  There are currently two books in the series and a new one is coming out in the coming months called Baby Loves Quantum Physics.

As the author of the Baby Loves Science series of board books, Ruth Spiro’s goal has been to learn as much as she can about science, and also about how parents and caregivers can turn everyday experiences into fun, informal learning opportunities for their little ones.  Check these out for your STEM loving, curious little readers!

    Just a couple of days back I was reading this article about why more girls do not go into the field of science, and one of the reasons given by them -which were really good reasons – was the fact that in early days of childhood girls are bombarded with toys that are cute but not educational. And, that is the time opinions and likings are formed. Books such as these will certainly help to encourage more kids, especially girls, to take science as a field of career,
