A friend of mine asked me for my opinion about board books marketed for toddlers with titles like Quantum Physics for Babies and Quantum Entanglement for Babies that her niece was thinking of buying for her child.
You can see the books here.
My opinion is that these are ghastly books that I would never buy for my grandsons. They just use physics vocabulary and think that knowing words equals understanding. That is pernicious. One of the big problems in science education is that students think that knowing words and definitions means they understand the concepts when often they have very little idea. These kinds of books feed into that wrong idea of what learning is. They are clearly being marketed to ambitious parents who from the moment their child is born are planning for them to enroll in elite universities.
While books and reading are very important, children would be far better served learning concrete ideas that are stimulating to the imagination than abstract concepts that lack any concrete basis. Dr. Seuss books like Red Fish, Blue Fish would be far better than this garbage.
