It only takes a small spark to ignite a child's mind.
Chris Ferrie is a physicist, mathematician and father of three budding young scientists. He obtained his doctorate in Mathematical Physics from the University of Waterloo in Waterloo, Canada and currently holds a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chris believes it is never too early to introduce children to the wild and wonderful world of physics!
"This series is entirely age-appropriate and baby-accessible,
featuring bright colors and simple sentence structure; it's just
that instead of teaching words like "hippopotamus" they teach words
like "electron". A wonderful way to help stimulate interest in math
and science from an extremely early age, the Baby University series
is highly recommended, especially for library collections intended
for pre-Kindergarten children." - Midwest Book
"In this board book series, Ferrie makes his knowledge accessible to the youngest of readers--and probably some adults, too... the subject material will certainly be enjoyable for trendy caretakers to read aloud. (And the pictures of babies chewing on the covers are going to be #instaworthy.)" - Shelf Awareness for Readers
"We were intrigued how Chris would master introducing quantum physics to such young minds but we were impressed! Neutrons, protons, atoms, electrons are explained as simply as possible. The drawings are again so easy to understand. This kept our three year old's interest right until the end and she was happy to learn that she is now on her way to being a quantum physicist! There are few things cute than hearing a child under 5 saying quantum physicist." - TheBabySpot.CA
"Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space." - School Library Journal
"Whether you're expecting an amazing bundle of joy, or already have one or more, these new books by Chris Ferrie are perfect!" - Kelly's Thoughts on Things
"Ferrie delivers a cleanly designed introduction to how matter and energy interact on an atomic level." - Publishers Weekly
