These little books about big ideas -- BABY LOVES QUARKS and BABY LOVES AEROSPACE ENGINEERING -- make me very happy, and I'm so glad that they are out in the world today!

I work with Ruth Spiro, the writer whose concept these books are. Her ability to explain complex scientific ideas simply and completely, never ceases to amaze me!  When she sent me the texts for these two books, I was utterly delighted and I know that parents, babies and teachers will be too.

Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby, QUARKS explores the basics of particle physics and chemistry – quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms and molecules – and ties it all to baby’s world. AEROSPACE ENGINEERING looks into the basics of flight, again relating everything to babies' 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!

MetroParent says, "The books are well-crafted for their young audience, with bright colors, adorable illustrations of babies and subject matter that is tailor-made to young children's interests. In AEROSPACE ENGINEERING a baby notices a bird, and, in short, simple sentences, concepts of aeronautics are taught... [In QUARKS]...the concept of atoms being the building blocks of matter is compared to actual building blocks. Little children will love the adorable illustrations of protons and neutrons holding hands as they unify to create an atom, and they'll love the concept of scientists smashing a nucleus as the baby smashing his block tower is shown!"  (For the complete review, click here).

Charlesbridge has already signed up two more BABY LOVES books -- BABY LOVES THERMODYNAMICS! and BABY LOVES QUANTUM PHYSICS! will be published next fall.
