Star Trek Book Of Opposites

Star Trek Book Of Opposites - David Borgenicht

The books says:
With the help of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and two dozen colorful pictures from across the galaxy, teach your children the meaning of big and little, hot and cold, apart and together and much, much more!

I say:
That's right people. This is a board book. A Star Trek board book! I'm sure those people at Quirk are trying to turn me into a Trekkie - you know what? The scary thing is I think it may be working. I now 'get' way more of the Big Bang Theory references than I ought to!

I frigging love this book - I really do. From the moment I opened the covers I laughed out loud. Aimed obviously, at little babies and pre-schoolers this is a book to teach your youngsters opposites. Words like 'Mean' and 'Nice' are accompanied by a scary and a pretty alien. 'Calm' and 'Surprised' by Spock and Kirk... I say babies and pre-school but my 4 year old has a Charlie & Lola varient that she still loves... well, she now has a Star Trek one too and she had great fun shouting out the different words.

A book for the big and little Trekkies in your life.

Big, huge fun!

My favourite pages :)

  3. What fun! I am a HUGE fan of the Captain Kirk era Star Trek (we named a guinea pig Tribble in honour of the episode, "The Trouble With Tribbles").

    Great stocking filler.

    ps my fab tote arrived safe and sound today, thank you!!

  4. Omg TRIBBLES! If it wasn't for Captain Kirk I probably would have been a Trekkie, couldn't stand his acting style (still can't) or his character. Now Wesley Crusher was a different matter ;-p As for now a days, the beard really doesn't do it for me (sorry Will, I bet your gutted aren't you ;-)
