Robotics for Babies


I love this new trend of baby books. They make me laugh because they’re so silly at first glance, but then I also really appreciate their existence. It’s such a fun way to introduce big and complicated math and science ideas. I think it’s also great for those of us who are more… artistically inclined. Because if it’s simple enough for babies, it’s simple enough for me! This book makes me feel like an expert because I follow along, and therefore makes me look like a genius to my kids *insert evil laugh here*

This particular book focuses on robotics and automation. It starts with a simple circle. It grows from creating more circles by hand to using small ways to make the process easier until those small ways build up to a big way using machines. I really like how this is explained with simple pictures and easy to follow summarizations of what is happening and what will happen better next. It also does a great job of starting a new step by encouraging critical thinking. It doesn’t just say “let’s do this to make it better” but instead asks “how can we make this faster” and then answers it.

I definitely need the entire series now. Start that STEM stuff early so it can balance out with all the exposure to the arts they’ll get from me!
