This is a great book that states concepts simply and makes the science approachable for young kids. You need not worry this is some helicopter parent tool for sucking all the joy out of childhood. It is a picture book with simple pictures and no harder to read than "Good Night Moon". Why not foster love of science early?

This book is great. It really does teach some basic concepts of physics in a simple way that young children can understand. My two year old asks me to read it to her frequently, and will often talk about her ball having energy, or being made of atoms. Also, it's worth it just to hear your toddler say, "Quantum Physics, please!"

These books by Chris Ferrie are amazing. I love to read books to my daughter but I also like them to have an educational value. A lot of books out there are pretty much garbage for her brain..which is fine because any book that creates a love of reading is great.. but I love this series because they are enjoyable but also educational. These books break down complex concepts into very basic explanations that even my two year old can kind of understand. Imagine the surprise on my friends faces when my daughter talks to them about atoms or quanta or says something about Einstein. That alone is well worth the purchase price of these books. But it's especially awesome to read to my daughter and know that she's learning something awesome. Books like these help teach our little girls (and boys too) a love of Science.

This is a very cute book. Simple basic drawing, easy to understand, yet still informative. Whether or not it turned my children into geniuses remains to be seen :)
I'm not sure why I was expecting it to be a board book, but I think I would have preferred that over a paperback. I worry about the life expectancy of paper books in my house, having 2 boys still in diapers.
Either way, I'm interested to see what the other books from the same author look like. If they're similar to this, I'll be picking them up.

I really like the concept of this book, but the printing is very disappointing. I knew it would be papercover, but it really ought to be hardcover or at least a sturdier paper cover. The pages are so thin you can see the printing/colors through to the other side. It honestly feels like I could've printed this on a home printer. Very flippy floppy book. Adult use would wear this book out, forget about baby saliva and grabbing.

it is an interesting way to explain the basics of physics (positive/negative charges, protons, electrons etc. to small children in very simple and easy to understand words. Parents and grandparents can expand on this a bit and I think it will get kids interested in it. Sometimes parents shy away from science and math with small children, thinking they may be bored with a book that does not have bunnies or animals, but sometimes it only takes a small spark to ignite a child's interest. There are also other books in this series by the same author.

I bought this for my new born neice. We've gotten some great pictures of her "reading" it. Also my brother reports that it is a good length - it's long enough but doesn't go on forever like some kid's books. It'll probably buy them a collections of these books because they are so much fun - plus how can you go wrong when they are so educational.

If the author focused more on making the book engaging for kids this would be great. As it is, my 3 yr old is only somewhat interested in this book. She much prefers the Introduction to Calculus for Infants (different author). However, this book does introduce basic quantum physics in a fundamentally accurate way.
