Format: Board book
My daughter, 2 years old, likes the book well enough. The mean/nice opposite might be teaching her the wrong thing about appearances vs intentions, regardless of whether or not TOS canon actually proved that the pretty one was nice and the gucky one was mean.

The perfect book for my geeky husband to read to our son! They both love this book and I am learning about Star Trek as well!

Short and Funny Boardbook Sept. 6 2011
By SciFiChick - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Ambiguous illustrations and unhelpful vocabulary April 6 2014
By MikeC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
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.

Very Entertaining Dec 19 2011

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.

Fun board book March 8 2014
By ableekertomorrow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
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. :)

Awesome kids book Jan. 28 2014
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
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.
