School Library Journal - 06/14/2019 PreS-Young readers are encouraged to explore and learn in these two fun and informative books from the series. In Ocean, the Nerdy Babies learn about marine life both at the surface and deeper underwater. In Space, the babies travel to outer space, learning basic details about the solar system, including the sun, moon, and planets, as well as concepts such as gravity. At the end, each book introduces readers to respective STEM careers, astronauts in Space and marine biologists in Ocean. Kastner provides a cheerful, appealing introduction to science topics for young audiences. Her approach is simple, straightforward, and age-appropriate, making it easy for children to digest concepts that could otherwise be confusing or overly complicated. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and eye-catching, providing details and additional facts that eager and curious kids will enjoy spotting as they read. Both books feature a varied cast of babies, breaking the usual "nerd" stereotypes and showing that science is for everyone. VERDICT These simple science books will be a hit with budding scientists.
