Baby Loves Quarks!
Big, brainy science for the littlest listeners
Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, this book explores the basics of particle physics and chemistry – quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms and molecules – and ties it all to baby’s world. 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!

Awards & Honors:
I applaud this series of board books for attempting to bring some complicated topics down to a very introductory level. Using cute and colorful illustrations, these books rely on the familiar to explain the unfamiliar. Baby Loves Quarks equates a tower built with toy blocks to atoms built with quarks; Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering shows how birds fly, using that as a way to explain what happens in aerodynamics. Obviously, the books have to keep things on a very abstract level, but if you’re looking for baby books that at least bring up the subjects of physics and engineering as normal aspects of everyday life, these are a great place to start
