Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this book explores the basics of particle physics and chemistry - quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms and molecules - and ties it all to baby's world. Beautiful, visually stimulating illustrations complement age-appropriate language to encourage baby's sense of wonder. Parents and caregivers may learn a thing or two, as well!

The Book Snob Mom

Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

I LOVE the concept of teaching kids more difficult concepts in a simplified form via board books when they're little, in the hopes that it may subconsciously spark general curiosity or a specific interest. I think this book does a decent job of building concepts, but it's a lot more interesting to me as an adult to see how they're explaining these simplified concepts than it is to my toddler, but I could see this being great for a slightly older child, or to reference with older siblings as they start sciences!

Love that this book breaks down some science concepts to be read to even the littlest of children and help them become familiar with the ideas. I think this book does a pretty good job combining the concept of molecules and likens it to building blocks. Plus, I love the illustrations!
