Ages 0 to 3 years Newtonian Physics for Babies by Chris Ferrie introduces Newton’s three laws of motion. Although centuries old, Newton’s laws are still used today to predict the motion of objects at the human scale. With Newton’s laws, we can do simple things like predict where a thrown ball will land all the way to complicated things like landing a man on the moon. And now baby will know them too! This is the first in a series of books designed to stimulate your baby and introduce them to the world of science. Also coming in May are: General Relativity for Babies Rocket Science for Babies Quantum Physics for Babies
Every book I’ve read in this series has landed in the “just ok” category for me. It does explain physics concepts, but in a such a way that doesn’t truly illuminate the principles for little minds and with illustrations that look far more like physics diagrams than they do like children’s illustrations… boring.
CHRIS FERRIE is an award-winning physicist and is the senior lecturer for Quantum Software and Information at the University of Technology-Sydney. He has a Masters in Applied Mathematics, BMath in Mathematical Physics and a PhD in Applied Mathematics. He lives in Australia with his wife and children.
