Organic Chemistry for Babies by Chris Ferrie and Cara Florence
Last week, I reviewed a board book by Chris Ferrie, award-winning physicist from Sydney Australia. I loved 8 Little Planets so much that I found myself returning to his baby University series for further inspiration and fun. There are so many titles that captivated me that I had to follow-up and share at least one more. Board books are especially appealing to babies (and their adult reader-helpers) when they are interactive, have bright and colorful illustrations, and the text is clear, simple, and inviting. A little humor thrown in is an added benefit. Check on all accounts with Organic Chemistry for Babies. And yes, it really is a colorfully simple introduction to the structure of organic, carbon-containing compounds and materials. The illustrations are super child-friendly: for example, the cover depicts pacifiers in the shape of cyclohexane. A delightful reading experience for all involved. Check out the other titles in the Baby University series, too!
