Rocket Science for Babies by Chris Ferrie is an introduction to aerospace engineering (also known as rocket science).

Baby will learn the principles of lift and thrust, the forces responsible for flight.

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
  • General Relativity 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 New Mexico in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Chris believes it is never too early to introduce children to the wild and wonderful world of physics!

"Physicist and father Chris Ferrie knows it's never too soon to learn Newton's three laws of motion or Einstein's theory of general relativity. His board books are illustrated with eye-catching graphics for baby geniuses and written with a tongue in cheek humour for their adult friends, who might also learn a thing or two about aerospace engineering." - Plenty Magazine "The title page says it all. A rocket soother! Your child will learn the basics of rocket science and Chris Ferried does not disappoint. How does a ball move? Can air go around it? What happens if we change the angle of the ball? Where does the shape go? Your little one will learn what happens when a wing has lift and the simple illustrations do not disappoint. A brief explanation of fuel for a rocket ship will send your child tumbling into the fascinating world of rocket science. Your budding scientist will love the simple explanations of complicated concepts." - TheBabySpot.CA "The Baby University board-book series is designed to teach infants about the most fundamental basics of science. 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 Review "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 "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 Reader "Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space." - School Library Journal
