That’s why creative authors like David Borgenicht are coming up with innovative board books that will keep you, the parent, from going insane. Behold the Star Trek Book of Opposites from Quirk Books.”—Neatorama.com

By SciFiChick VINE VOICE on September 6, 2011
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.

My wife and I are both Trekkies, but we both find this book to be a dud for teaching our 15-month-old son new words. The first problem is that many of the illustrations don't really convey the vocabulary they are trying to teach. For example:
-small/big - it's hard to actually be sure that one person is small and one is big given the angles of the photos
-young/old - I certainly wouldn't call McCoy a "young" guy.

And then some of the words are not necessarily words we would want to teach our young son. For example, "ugly" is probably unhelpful. I could give more examples.

Great idea, but execution wasn't great.

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.

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. :)

My nephew will be a year old in January, so this will make a great Christmas gift. It arrived with a couple bumps and bruises, but nothing worth worrying about. I agree with some reviews that the word/picture pairing can be a bit ambiguous for a small child, but I think the fact that the fun factor more than makes up for it.

I'm a geek. My husband is a geek. Now, thanks to this book (among others) my daughter is, too. She knows all of the characters in the book and doesn't think any of the pictures are scary. (She's had this since she was a baby and is now three.)

It's held up extremely well considering all the abuse it's taken. I wish there were more Star Trek books!

Our family has really enjoyed this book. A non Trekkie would find the alien pictures disturbing to show to their children, but we bought this book before our son Kirk was born and it's never bothered him. Without even encouraging him to like this book we often find him alone in his room flipping through it.

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!
