Format: Board book
Dr. Levitt's first book, "Baby Barbells: The Dad's Guide to Fitness and Fathering" is phenomenal. Not only does Dr. Levitt give great ideas for how to interact physically with your baby in a way that keeps your body strong and toned, but it also gives great advice for all fathers. With pages dedicated to "staying present during your time with your child" and "remembering to support your exhausted wife and do a little extra around the house", this is much, much more than a fitness book. It is also a board book, so it will last a long time, and survive enthusiastic book loving babies. The text is easy to read and brief, allowing for a quick read for even the most exhausted or busy dad. One last bonus: This is a book mom's will love and learn from as well. Bravo Dr. Levitt. This book is a breath of fresh air!

Ok so the concept is great but the book is small and the exercises are limited. Being active with your children is great so I will give it four stars. I guess it maybe ok for you depending on your fitness level. I like intensity and do Crossfit a lot so it was just not enough for me. Just don't expect anything amazing out of it and you should be fine.

I love this book, It is a treat and a treasure. Baby Barbells: The Dad's Guide to Fitness and Fathering by Dr. Josh Levitt packs a punch of wit and wisdom about parenting and family health. The writing style is charming, very instructive and the drawings are awesome. My recommendation: buy a bunch of these delightful books and gift them to the guys you love.

I love that this book is made just like a baby book; hard cardboard pages and great pictures. Cleverly written and my husband liked that it had some good workouts for him to use while playing with baby. I bought it for Father's Day and it was a hit for everyone at the table!

This is the first fathering book that I have ever read that I truly got good advice from. The author's recommendations are down to earth, clearly written, and well thought out. He explains why he makes these specific recommendations. The board book format is both quirky and practical, and the entire product is well-designed and well manufactured. I will be buying additional copies for friends who become fathers.

you can tell this was made in China. The American babies are ugly old men. lol BUT...as a note about the product. It's a pic picture book like it's for a toddler, which is okay. However....my daughter uses it more than my son-in-law. Guess you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.... lol

I bought this for my husband for Christmas, who will be a first time daddy in a few months, thinking it would be a little bit of a light-hearted nod to what's to come. He is very fitness oriented so I liked the connection between baby and staying active. What I didn't expect was the really good tips on being an involved dad. It's easy to read and has a good message, turned out to be a really great gift, better than I even expected.

The book was simple to understand and very light reading. It makes a great gift to new parents, both mum and dad. So many ideas for dads to get involved and mums can take a leaf out of the exercise section for post natal exercise and weightloss.
