Trusted Reviews & Ratings

4.75 / 7.0

I really like the way that this book, and the others in its series, break down exciting STEM careers into activities, tasks, and questions that even pre-schoolers can understand, do, or pretend to do. Artistically, the illustrations and writing are fine. I do find myself wishing that the main character was a toddler or preschooler instead of a baby, because it would make it so much more relatable to the crowd that can actually use and enjoy the book.

Who Illustrated Baby Oceanographer

Daniel Wiseman

Daniel Wiseman likes to draw. A lot. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful son. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly in his car, riding his bike on the mean streets of STL, or napping.
