Trusted Reviews & Ratings

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mommy-to-be! Recently enjoyed The Hobbit, Becoming, and The Marvelous Magic of Miss Mabel.
5.0 / 7.0

This book does a really great job of simplifying the explanations for lift, thrust, and rocket science. I think adults will learn from this one, too! :) It has very simple illustrations to go along with the simple explanations, and I like that this book is very educational. It might still go over little one’s heads, but I still think it’s a great intro book, teaching them science behind really cool rockets.

Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
4.5 / 7.0

This book seems to be more about the older readers of this book than the babies and toddlers, but it is a wonderfully simple explanation of an otherwise complicated physics concept, explained so that a child could understand. I love the idea of making science accessible from a really early age to give kids confidence and exposure and pique their interest!
