Product Description

General Relativity for Babies by Chris Ferrie is a simple introduction to Einstein's crowning achievement. Baby will learn how mass warps space-time and how spinning black holes can send ripples of gravitational waves through space.

With Newton's laws, we can do simple things like predict where a thrown ball will land all the way to complicated things like landing a man on the moon. And now baby will know them too!

This is the first in a series of books designed to stimulate your baby and introduce them to the world of science.

Also coming in May are:

  • Newtonian Physics for Babies
  • Rocket Science for Babies
  • Quantum Physics for Babies

About the Author

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 Sydney in Sydney, Australia. Chris believes it is never too early to introduce children to the wild and wonderful world of physics!


Great fun and very informative, not just for babies.


A great gift for grandchildren, especially ages 2 to 8 as they can practise their reading as well as their physics!

Toddler gives the thumbs up


My toddler likes this book, but he does love every book on earth. As the person reading it to him, I don't find it as enjoyable. It's a bit too dry, and lacks the engaging storyline that the 'Baby Loves Science' series has. It was worth a try, but I'll be sticking to the other series.



General Relativity for Babies : Baby University

4.0 2


"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

"Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space."
School Library Journal

"A great way to introduce young children to important ideas! General Relativity for Babies gives understandable explanations for big ideas while building foundational vocabulary about general relativity. My little guy was very intrigued by this board book! "

"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

"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."
