Please welcome my guest author today, Ruth Spiro! Ruth’s series, Baby Loves Science, introduces very young children to science concepts. She’s created a list of science-y board books and picture books for babies and toddlers.
We are giving away 8 signed books by Ruth Spiro — two each of her books! To enter, please fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom.
Babies and toddlers delight in discovering new things every day. Watching a bird fly, building a block tower, and even feeling the sun’s warm rays, they are gathering information on how the world works. As author of the Baby Loves Science series of board books, my goal is to help create a connection between these familiar experiences and the science behind them.
When selecting books, note that even those not specifically about science can still develop foundational skills that may spark a future interest. I’m happy to share this list of books that may help parents and caregivers turn everyday moments into fun learning opportunities for their little ones.
