Baby Loves Quarks! (Baby Loves Science Book 2) Kindle Edition
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.
With tongue firmly in cheek, the Baby Loves Science series introduces highly intellectual science concepts to the littlest learners.
From the Publisher
Mixing Up Science
Demonstrate the idea of atoms to your child with homemade play dough! Invite your child to help measure or mix the ingredients for a big batch of fun.
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 to 5 drops food coloring of your choice
Combine the wet and dry ingredients separately, then slowly add the colored water to the flour-salt mixture, stirring and then kneading until the water is completely absorbed. If the dough is too sticky, add flour until it doesn't stick.
Throughout this process, encourage your child to observe each ingredient closely; compare the size of salt grains to flour grains, watch how the drops of food coloring diffuse into the water, and see how little clumps of flour eventually blend into the dough. Where do the flour grains go? Are they still in there, just too small to see? Everything is made up of tiny little pieces like flour grains that you can't see: things called atoms, which are made of quarks!
Offers a simplified explanation of quarks, protons, neutrons, atoms, and molecules. Also check out Baby Loves Aerospace Engineering!

...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.

After we bought this for us, I bought another copy as a gift for my friend's kids. My friend is a physicist, and loved this book so much he took it with him the next time he went to a conference to show all of his colleagues.

My 2 year old daughter and I have read every book in this series except Quantum Physics (yet!) and would enthusiastically recommend all of them except maybe Green Energy (which my daughter doesn't mind, but I found a bit reductive). Baby Loves Coding is by far her favorite, while mine is probably Baby Loves Thermodynamics.

she repeatedly asks though are they only for babies and I have to reassure her its completely fine to like those books.
All the adults have learnt something too!
