Goodnight, Lab, by Chris Ferrie

As Chris Ferrie showed us in General Relativity for Babies, he believes it's never too early to introduce scientific concepts to children.  Goodnight, Lab follows the pattern of the age-old classic picutre book Goodnight, Moon, naming items around a scientific laboratory.

The budding scientist will be introduced to--and can say goodnight to--new friends like Albert Einstein and a "grumpy old professor shouting 'publish.'"  Other new "friends" include the ammeter, the voltmeter, the thermometer, the spectrometer, the liquid nitrogen, the compressed air, and the laser.

This isn't a great book with great art.  But it's cute.  Scientists will love it, and will love to read it to their kids.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!
