Release Date : May 2019

Publisher: HarperFestival/HarperCollins


About the Books:

Baby Scientist: Oceanographer & Baby Scientist: Astronaut are the first books in a series that makes science jobs fun and accessible for preschoolers – next up are botany and paleontology. In each, a toddler “scientist” names the things he or she observes in the world they explore – in the ocean, dolphins, fish, an octopus and algae; and in space, the moon, stars, a space station, and planets. Baby Scientist: Astronaut is just in time for this year’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the first moon landing, July 20, 2019.
