Engineering for Babies
Economics for Babies
Jonathan Litton and Thomas Elliott
There’s a brand new ‘Science’ title as well as a ‘Business’ one in the Baby 101 board book series.
In the first book, tinies can find out some of the different roles engineers perform be that making, problem solving , improving how things work or perhaps investigating health-related issues.
Some will make enormous things while others such as molecular engineers work with things that cannot be seen with the naked eye alone.
Maths and science are often used by engineers in the planning of their projects: to a considerable extent our futures are in their hands.
Economics looks simply at the development of trading from bartering/swapping to pricing and what might affect changes in prices.
Both titles end by asking ‘Can you be a little … ?’ with a final lift the flap surprise.
Thomas Elliott’s boldly illustrated, bright colourful scenes will help babies focus their attention on each spread.
Just right for kick starting your toddler’s interest in STEM topics.
Little Adventurers: Airport
Jonny Marx and Cinta Villabos
There’s plenty to engage little minds, eyes and fingers in this large format board book with its busy airport setting.
We start in the check-in area then move through security all a beep with detectors and a buzz with gizmos.
From there it’s on to the departure lounge to wait until the flight is at the gate and ready for boarding.
On board the plane we see things from inside – the seating and cockpit, as well as being able to view the take off.
The final spread has a gatefold that opens right out to show the passengers’ arrival, passage through passport control and airport exit.
Every spread has straightforward narrative information, questions to think about, flaps to explore, speech bubbles and a bottom border of four items to spot.
Fun, interactive and with lots of potential for language development, this will keep your little ones interested throughout and they’ll likely keep going back to join the jet-setting family on their journey.
