My thoughts: Typically board books are for those wee little ones and cover baby animals, sweet thoughts, and other wee-little-one ideas. The American Museum of Natural History has launched a very good "board book" that can be used for that precocious little one to learn his or her ABC's or on into lower elementary school. The ABC factoids are great! What a tremendously fun way to learn about the Universe - planets, stars lunar eclipse, Nebula, etc. Going through the alphabet, each letter presents a different factoid and object: "Orbit - An orbit is the path that an object takes as it moves around another object."
Simply stated facts. Beautifully and strikingly illustrated, the pages will capture the interest and become an object of mental engagement for children, parents, and even class rooms.
I'm quite impressed by this book.
