BEST BUSINESS & entrepreneurship BOOKS FOR BABIES, TODDLERS & preschoolers
It took us a while to find inspiring entrepreneurship and business books that were engaging enough to read to babies, toddlers and preschoolers but we finally found some! We like books that are colorful and filled with pictures. They may be a little harder for babies to understand but you can still read these to them as bedtime stories! As for toddlers and preschoolers, the concepts are sufficiently challenging yet not impossible for them to grasp. It’s never too early to ignite that entrepreneurship bug!

A book written by Mark Cuban for kids…? How can you resist? This concise book has some important concepts but presented in a clear, engaging way. Use it to inspire your kids to entrepreneurship!
I was surprised to see how much I enjoyed reading this book. It was written by a 15-year-old and he has some really great business ideas for kids ranging from Babysitting Broker to Window Washer. I am sure your child could get some great business ideas just by reading through the list!
- What Color is Your Piggy Bank? Entrepreneurial Ideas for Self-Starting Kids by Adelia Cellini Linecker
This book is a simple book to get your kid started on thinking about entrepreneurship. It comes with a lot of questions to help your child figure out what kind of business might suit them best.

We love this book! It is written by the creators of Bill Nye the Science Guy so you can assume that you are in for a good time. It is not only informative for kids but it is also presented in an extremely witty and funny way, which is extremely important to capture a kid’s attention. Highly recommended for an enjoyable, yet productive read.
Best STEM Books for Babies, Toddlers & Preschoolers
If you are an active ‘book-seeker’ for your child like we are, you will no doubt have come across the Usborne book brand.
Usborne is actually a direct sales company that sells children’s books using consultants. We are not an Usborne consultant ourselves and we certainly don’t like pushy sales people just like you but it’s undeniable that they have some of the best STEM books for kids around.
Here are our favorites.
We love the Usborne‘s Lift-the-Flap books because they are colorful and engaging for young kids.
This book is a great way to introduce your child to chemistry and the different elements in the periodic table. To see an example of what it looks like inside, watch this Youtube video.
Similar to the other Lift-the-Flap books, this book introduces simple Math concepts in a question and answer style that is fun and awesome.
I love it that Usborne created a lift-the-flap to introduce young ones to computers. I don’t know much about coding myself so I find this very helpful.
This book covers a whole variety of topics including volcanoes, the earth, languages of the world and animals. A nice way to introduce your child to a range of topics and see which ones your little one is most interested in.
This book covers a whole variety of Science topics and is also another way to get your child interested in asking Scientific questions and questioning things.
This book talks about things like healthy food, how to avoid getting ill and body processes like sweating.
There are many other Lift-the-Flap STEM books. Too many to list here but we would suggest that you start by choosing ones that interest your child (and you).
We love the Wipe-Clean books from Usborne too because you can use them over and over again. The books come with a washable marker which is pretty awesome when it gets on hands and clothes. As long as you can wash something, the ink will come out. Here are our favorites.
We love how this book incorporates colorful pictures and a variety of activities to introduce numbers and counting. Definitely fun! Highly recommended to make beginning Math fun.
This is a fun book that will teach your child about space and being an astronaut while learning other useful things like numbers, tracing dots and matching pictures.
Teaching times tables has always seemed like a difficult task for us because we were taught using the memorization method. This book gives you some ideas on how you can teach it in a more conceptual and visual way.
There are many other great Wipe-Clean books. Check out the entire list here.
We will be honest; we love all of Chris Ferrie’s stuff! Chris Ferrie is a father, physicist and mathematician and believes (like we do) that you can start introducing big concepts to little kids early. However, unlike the Usborne books, these books are less colorful, not as interactive and introduces some pretty big concepts. So these may suit slightly older kids who have a better attention span but you will definitely learn a thing or two here with these books!
Chris Ferrie’s Baby University Books include:
- ABCs of Science
- ABCs of Mathematics
- ABCs of Physics
- ABCs of Space
- Quantum Physics for Babies
- Rocket Science for Babies
- General Relativity for Babies
- Newtonian Physics for Babies
- Optical Physics for Babies
- Quantum Entanglement for Babies
- Electromagnetism for Babies
- Statistical Physics for Babies
- Quantum Information for Babies
- Organic Chemistry for Babies
- Quantum Computing for Babies
- Nuclear Physics for Babies
These books are a great guide for you, as a parent, to teach your child about STEM concepts. These are certainly not things that we normally think about on a day-to-day basis. You can probably agree that these concepts are not the easiest to understand so having a book that boils them down to simple concepts are awesome.
