Customer Reviews

Great, funny gift for Star Trek fans.
The Pink Owl
I bought this as a Christmas gift for my 18 month old as she loves board books and we like Star Trek.
Kristina Sales
It's lots of fun to read to her and I pretty much have the book memorized.

Format: Board book
This is the ultimate boardbook for future geeks. David Borgenicht and Quirk Books have created a delightfully fun and imaginative book for children and their Star Trek loving parents. Instead of boring, tedious toddler books that adults tire of quickly, this puts a new spin on a book of opposites. Each page has a full color scene from the original Star Trek television show, with an equally appropriate opposite scene. From "Appear" and "Disappear" to "Calm" and "Surprised" this book will soon become you and your child's favorite book to read together. I hope this clever idea spurns more of the same, branching out into other geeky themes.

I bought this thinking I would use it in my daycare to have a fun and different way to teach opposites. As a Trek fan I thought it was funny and clever! But the photos are way too scary for little kids. But that is MY fault for not looking for reviews of it!

What a great treat for the Star Trek fan. Book has opposite pictures from various star trek original TV show. It's well made, colorful and very entertaining.

This book is sturdy and well constructed.

However, some of the pictures are a little creepy (the Star Trek "aliens") for an infant. I bought this as part of a Father's Day gift for my husband to read with our 5 month old. She doesn't mind the pictures now, but I can see where later on she may be a little frightened by them.

There are interesting opposites though.

We love the idea of this book and overall it's well done, but we decided to return it due to the image associated with 'mean' (it's a scary creature that looks like its face is melting off). I haven't seen all the original Star Trek episodes but my husband remembers that one frightening him as an 8 year old, so we don't think our younger sons will enjoy it. Too bad, otherwise we think the book is great.

An instant classic for any Trek fan, and Trek fan to be. Fun images, which play well off of the original episodes and ideas, while teaching children opposites. Though, I feel my wife may like this even more than my little girls do. :)

Some of the pictures are not obvious. They took stills from the show to illustrate the words they have; and some do not fit well. For example: Together and apart. The pictures are very similar; so for a young child it may not make sense.
That being said; the child's parent is a devoted Treky and she LOVES this book! It is honestly more for her purposes than the child. But once he is older he may understand.

I actually got this as an (awesome) gift for a one year old. I couldn't not get it. When the time comes for me to create a baby shower registry, this will be on it. It is exclusively TOS though. That's not really a problem, though I'd like to some TNG or DS9.
