Reviewing fantasy ensures that weird and wonderful things are constantly being delivered through the letterbox. But the Star Trek Book of Opposites takes the prize for being the weirdest and most wonderful of them all! Just thinking about it makes me smile.
For those of you not yet acquainted with these board books, here is a little explanation. A book of opposites aims to - in this instance using colourful photographs of classic Star Trek heroes and aliens - educate a toddler / pre-school child by visually introducing the concept of opposites. Prior to this board book arriving I already had three Charlie and Lola opposite books and can vouch to a) just how much my own children loved them and b) how much they aided their learning and development.

The Star Trek Book of Opposites is the brain-child of David Borgenicht (Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook, The Jewish Mother Goose and Sesame Street Unpaved), a New York Times bestselling author who first attended a first Star Trek convention when he was nine years old. It's fun and it's educational. It's also incredibly silly and that is its most endearing feature!

So, if you are a Trekkie with young children who are looking to explore strange new worlds, this is the perfect Christmas present. With the help of Kirk, Spock, and McCoy, you can teach children the meaning of happy and sad, open and closed, apart and together, and much more.
A barmy yet brilliant board-book.
