Newtonian Physics for Babies (Baby University) (Board book)
Help your future genius become the smartest baby in the room!
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!

"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
"Simple illustrations and simple explanations to launch your future rocket scientist." — NPR, Science Friday
"Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space." — School Library Journal
"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
"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
"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
