This book is exactly as advertised. It's a baby book about calculus and it's awesome! I bought it for my young nephew and love reading it to him. It's well written, amusing and adorable. If you are a math geek or just want a unique gift for a baby/toddler this is a great choice.

As was bound to happen, some reviewers are complaining because the book is not helping them learn calculus. I'm guessing they are also angry that Dr. Seuss' book Green Eggs and Ham did not actually teach them how to prepare said green eggs and ham. People, it's a baby book for goodness sake.

My hubby just got a PHD in applied math and thought this would be a cute thing for him to have for our 3 year old and our new baby. My husband really liked the math (though he said the illustrations were pretty crappy - I told him he should make his own book then!) and even exclaimed they even have natural limits!
My 3 year old thinks its a fun story and talks about how poor "x" is very sad b/c the other numbers made fun of him, until he found a good play friend in "f". He especially likes them swimming in the pool made by the concavity.

Great gift!

This is a good math intro for young children, but I take issue with the title. There's only a tiny bit of calculus that is addressed (derivatives) with most of the book focusing on algebra and some trigonometry. Be aware of this when buying; the book may be too easy for those children ready to tackle calculus head on.

This is a paperback book with simple, vibrant colors and drawings. Humorously written and not too complicated. I bought this as a gift for my newborn nephew whose parents are both engineers. I think this is going to be the hit of Christmas in our house. Also, for kids, if they've seen math like this their whole lives, they won't be afraid of it when then get to algebra, pre-calc, etc when they get to high school. Kudos to the author!

The other day I was looking at a stock chart and she points at the screen and exclaims, "boundless!".

If they made a series out of this, I would buy every one. Starting with classical mechanics please.

My five-year-old really enjoys reading this, even though she doesn't understand the math. It's an alphabet story - X has very few friends, but F shows X that when they play together as f(x) they can meet all the letters of the alphabet! Each letter and term is accompanied by the appropriate graph (*a*bsolute value, *e*xponential, *p*arabolic, etc.) on through the alphabet. At the end X has lots of friends.

I like this book as a stealthy way to introduce mathematical concepts to children at an early age. However, this is not appropriate for infants because it's a simple paperback book, not printed on harder/thicker stock. I would say that this is ideal for the 3-5 year old child that's learning to read because it ties in a simple story that they can follow along with.

The title and cover say it all. This book looks great on our nursery bookshelf and turns lots of heads. A great gift for those nerdy new parents.

The story itself isn't that great, it doesn't really make sense or have a plot or anything, but there are plenty of inside jokes that will make nerdy parents giggle while they read. Since your young baby has no clue what you are saying anyways, may as well read something that makes you giggle.

They probably take the joke a bit too far in my opinion, like a bad SNL sketch that keeps going. They could make the story a little more child friendly and cut the book in half or so page wise.

Still a gret gag gift for a baby shower or something.
