It’s never too early to become a scientist! Set the children in your life on a lifelong path to learning with the next incredible installment of the Baby University board book series. Other Baby University titles include Quantum Physics for Babies, Rocket Science for Babies, and many more!


“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

“Simple illustrations and simple explanations to launch your future rocket scientist.” – NPR, Science Friday

“Start ’em young with this STEM-centric board-book that promotes science literacy.” – Los Angeles Times

“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

“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

“These adorable board books teach baby quantum physics.” – The Bump

“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

About the Authors:

Chris FerrieChris 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!



Sarah Kaiser Dr. Sarah Kaiser has a PhD in physics (quantum information) from the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, and now works as a Research Engineer at Pensar Development. Based in Seattle, she is an experimentalist specialized in building and breaking opto-electronic systems. Some of her favorite things: Talking about quantum technologies, good kayaking spots, and how fun it is to break things to learn how they work.
