Simple explanations of complex ideas for your future genius
Written by an expert, Newtonian Physics for Babies is a colorfully simple introduction to Newton's laws of motion. Babies (and grownups ) will learn all about mass, acceleration, the force of gravity, and more. With a tongue-in-cheek approach that adults will love, this installment of the Baby University board book series is the perfect way to introduce basic concepts to even the youngest scientists. After all, it's never too early to become a physicist
It only takes a small spark to ignite a child's mind.
"Simple illustrations and simple explanations to launch your future rocket scientist." - NPR, Science Friday "Start 'em young with this STEM-centric board-book that promotes science literacy by introducing concepts such as mass, net force and gravity. " - Los Angeles Times "Physicist and father Chris Ferrie knows it's never too soon to learn Newton's three laws of motion or Einstein's theory of general relativity. His board books are illustrated with eye-catching graphics for baby geniuses and written with a tongue in cheek humour for their adult friends, who might also learn a thing or two about aerospace engineering." - Plenty Magazine "Let's weigh in on gravity. The book keeps your little ones interested as they learn that Sir Isaac Newton wrote the three laws of motion. The apples do not float away but feels the force of gravity once they fall off of a tree. The bright drawings draw your child in as Chris uses easy to understand words to introduce your child to Newtonian Physics. As Chris says, it only takes on small spark to ignite a child's mind. This quality book is exactly what we should feel our babies and children with. Hey, you might walk away learning something. Feel free to use demonstrations while explaining Newtonian Physics to your little one. Every child loves a good item falling to the ground!" - TheBabySpot.CA "The Baby University board-book series is designed to teach infants about the most fundamental basics of science. This series is entirely age-appropriate and baby-accessible, featuring bright colors and simple sentence structure; it's just that instead of teaching words like "hippopotamus" they teach words like "electron." A wonderful way to help stimulate interest in math and science from an extremely early age, the Baby University series is highly recommended, especially for library collections intended for pre-Kindergarten children." - Midwest Book Review "In this board book series, Ferrie makes his knowledge accessible to the youngest of readers--and probably some adults, too... the subject material will certainly be enjoyable for trendy caretakers to read aloud. (And the pictures of babies chewing on the covers are going to be #instaworthy.)" - Shelf Awareness for Readers "Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space." - School Library Journal
Chris Ferrie is a physicist, mathematician and father of three budding young scientists. He obtained his doctorate in Mathematical Physics from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada and currently holds a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chris believes it is never too early to introduce children to the wild and wonderful world of physics!
