Baby Loves Gravity
Written by Ruth Spiro & illustrated by Irene Chan
board book
Recommend Ages: 2-5

Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners.

Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this clever board book explores the ups and downs of gravity. When baby drops food from a high chair, why does it fall? 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!

Gravity
Written & illustrated by Jason Chin
picture book
Recommend Ages: 5-8

What keeps objects from floating out of your hand?
What if your feet drifted away from the ground?
What stops everything from floating into space?
Gravity.

As in his previous books, Redwoods, Coral Reefs, and Island, Jason Chin has taken a complex subject and made it brilliantly accessible to young readers in this unusual, innovative, and very beautiful book.

Chin's approach makes this book a must-have common core tool for teachers and librarians introducing scientific principals to young students.

Bird Builds a Nest
Written by Martin Jenkins & illustrated by Richard Jones
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-6

It’s time for Bird to build her nest! Follow her as she pulls a worm out of the ground, lifts some twigs that are just the right size, and pushes the twigs into place. Uh-oh! One of the twigs falls to the ground! But after a day of hard work, Bird’s nest is ready and waiting. Can you guess what it’s waiting for? Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this engaging story is the perfect introduction to physical forces for very young readers. A final spread with some simple questions promotes discussion with parents, teachers, or caregivers and encourages readers to think about the concepts introduced.

A gentle, sweetly illustrated concept book takes on physical forces as young children learn about pushing and pulling.
