Ages 0 to 3 years Rocket Science for Babies by Chris Ferrie is an introduction to aerospace engineering (also known as rocket science). Baby will learn the principles of lift and thrust, the forces responsible for flight. 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: Newtonian Physics for Babies General Relativity for Babies Quantum Physics for Babies
This book does a really great job of simplifying the explanations for lift, thrust, and rocket science. I think adults will learn from this one, too! :) It has very simple illustrations to go along with the simple explanations, and I like that this book is very educational. It might still go over little one’s heads, but I still think it’s a great intro book, teaching them science behind really cool rockets.
This book seems to be more about the older readers of this book than the babies and toddlers, but it is a wonderfully simple explanation of an otherwise complicated physics concept, explained so that a child could understand. I love the idea of making science accessible from a really early age to give kids confidence and exposure and pique their interest!
