The Wondrous World of Astrophysics, Organic Chemistry, and Rocket Science for Babies!

By Josie Rhodes

It’s never too early to introduce our littles to the wondrous world of the sciences. I mean who’s kidding? I could use the refresher! (That’s why my 6 year old and I still read Dinoblock - The struggle and determination to commit all of the dinosaurs’ names to memory is REAL.)

But I digress. Science. Or more specifically Astrophysics, Organic Chemistry, and Rocket Science. Chris Ferrie, the mastermind behind the board books, is a father of four, happy husband, and you probably guessed it, a science master - more specifically, a lecturer at the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, specializing in quantum physics.

I LOVE this board book series for so many reasons: The books are bright and colorful and deliver such clear and succinct information making the content not only digestible but UNDERSTANDABLE! Eureka!
