Publisher Description

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!

Author Biography

Ruth Spiro's debut picture book, LESTER FIZZ, BUBBLE-GUM ARTIST, was a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year. She lives in Chicago, Illinois.

Review

Baby Loves Quarks! explores the basics of particle physics and chemistry - quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms and molecules - and ties it all to baby's world. Accurate enough to satisfy an expert, yet simple enough for baby. --Inky Girl Offers a simplified explanation of quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms, and molecules. Also check out Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering! --5 Minute Librarian

...The full-color cartoonish illustrations help to make the concepts more concrete, such as showing how a bird's curved wing helps it fly. These work best as a gift to a new parent who works in the science field. --BayViews

Review Quote

"Introduce babies to nuclear physics" -- Kirkus Reviews

Excerpt from Book

Baby likes to build a tower with blocks. Nature likes to build things, too! Baby builds with blocks. Nature builds with quarks. Quarks like to stick together.
