Grab a play mat, blocks, and your favorite baby engineer. It’s time to build something—and see science at work!

Oh, my. You’ve gathered lots of materials.
What will you build?

With blocks at the ready, watch as your baby uses their hands to bear weight and the couch for support while experimenting with setting up a sturdy base, stacking a tower, spanning a space with an arch—and applying force, of course. Bash! Smash! Crash! Babies and toddlers are naturally curious explorers—now help them discover that science is fun! In this bright, graphic board book, photos of busy little ones offset a lively running dialogue sprinkled with factual asides that define basic engineering terms.

Learning Value
I love the photographs of babies engaging in play. The text support was more for the parents with simpler text to read to your young readers making it contain something that both ages can learn from reading this book. Using simple play this book defines basic principles of engineering that show even when playing a lot is going on in babies' brains and physical development.
