    One thought on “General Relativity for Babies

    1. Jen

      Maybe if this and the other books in this series were my bedtime reading as a youngster, I would be able to understand this one now! My sleepy 7am brain didn't get it, but I do now, I think. 3 stars. I think these books are important to at least intro kids to big ideas in a simple way. Maybe some science students in school too Three stars because it wasn't accessible to me when I was up earlier than I would have liked on a Saturday, not because it's a bad book. Fantastic concept! Well worth it I [...]

      This is an interesting concept in making a book that describes a relatively what may seem like a complex idea to the youngest minds we have. Although the concept is interesting in that regard I still have a feeling that babies and children of young age still may not grasp the concept or have any type of idea of what the adult is reading to them. The presentation of the concept of relativity was given in an easy-to-understand way that was illustrated. Although mostly the words used were simple an [...]

      I'm gonna educate my 2yr old nephew if it will kill me. It won't kill me at least. Unless you count the death stares from my sister who basically goes "what the fuck, kelly."But eh?This book was cute, but even as someone who understands general relativity, it felt a bit confusing. I know, I know, THIS IS FOR BABIES IT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE COMPLETE. But all of a sudden it jumped to black holes!!! Like, dude before black holes, at least explain that stars go through life cycles and that black hol [...]

      I received a copy of this title for review from the publisher via Netgalley.Ten Second Synopsis:A basic, illustrated foray into the wilds of complex physics for little ones.I requested this one from Netgalley for review on the logic that I, as an intelligent, adult gargoyle, should be able to understand a concept - even one as advanced as general relativity - when it is explained at a baby's cognitive level. So, was my reasoning spurious? Long story short: yes. Yes it was. I was unable to grasp [...]

    5. Melissa

      A simple look at the basics of general relativity for babies and very young children. They would probably wouldn't understand but may enjoy the illustrations.

    6. Jeimy

      What did I just read? Mass, space, black holes, gravitational waves I'm not really sure, but it is a cute way to introduce anyone, not just babies, to the key concepts of relativity.

    7. Lisa

      I found this to be a pretty great introduction to general relativity for kids (babies might be a bit of a stretch) and much better than the author's book on quantum entanglement.

    8. Ryan

      I love a book that can take a complicated element and break it down to its basic form. This book does exactly that. Now for people who haven't studied physics it still may not make complete sense but upon additional reading it will become more clear. This book is a great way to start kids on understanding complex ideas and concepts. Now for fun factor. That is missing, but it's also not needed.

    9. Salwa

      Why does all the books have to start with a ball? Ok. fine, but this was too theoretical for babies. Mass and singularity may be a build up to understanding general relativity, but I was hoping this book would be a summary of the concept and something babies can relate to observable phenomenon. They are not trying to pass exams here, that they need a diluted version of chapter 1 of relativity.

    10. Cindy Mitchell *Kiss the Book*

      Ferrie, Chris General Relativity for Babies. BOARD BOOK. Sourcebooks Jabberwocky, 2017. $10.I think this is the best of Ferrie’s science concepts book. After reading it, I had a much better picture in my head of how mass and space interact. I really do think that even small children can understand this relationship after going through this a few times. I guess the real question is – will they care? I think of this series like Jennifer Adams’s BabyLit books – they are more for the adults [...]

    11. That One Librarian

      While this board book says "for babies" - adults may find they finally understand general relativity, too! This is one title from a new, science board book series by Chris Ferrie. The concept is very clearly presented with clean, basic language and clear, colorful illustrations. Parents looking for something fresh to read to their kids will love this series as a new option. The only negative is the "baby" branding in the series. These are really designed for late toddlers and preschoolers, but a [...]

    12. Hannah Herbert

      Although the subject matter is far beyond what a young child (or even a grown adult in a lot of cases) can actually understand, the illustrations are absolutely perfect for a young infant. Clearly the book is not meant to truly teach babies about general relativity, but it is a wonderful book for parents who love science or are looking to add something a little less traditional to their child's library. I received an Advance Reader Copy from Sourcebooks Jabberwocky via NetGalley in exchange for [...]

    13. Sarah

      I picked up these picture book ARCs (Rocket science for babies, General relativity for babies, and Newtonian physics for babies) for my expected nephew while at Digipalooza. The illustrations are very simple with tons of white space, and very short, bold sentences, one per page. The design is very good. I like that these might help parents think about using more science terminology with young children. Why is the sky blue? Physics.

    14. Lynndell

      I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Jabberwocky for the opportunity to read and review General Relativity for Babies! This picture book with a strong contrast of colors, teaches the basic knowledge of general relativity with clear illustrations and simple explanations. The visuals coincide well with the descriptions in this short board book for budding scientists, 5 stars!

    15. Beth

      Good for very small babies that don’t care what you are reading and curmudgeonly adults who are embarrassed to read baby books. Do not expect this to help you pass a physics class though. I would worry about toddlers thinking mass varies directly with volume if I were the type to worry about that. I mean, later in the book the color changes as the density increases but that isn’t initially clear.

    16. James

      I love the idea of these books, but this one seemed like too much of a stretch "for babies." The words and sentences were pretty complex for a "baby" book, not to mention the ideas they explained. This book just seemed out of place - too advanced for the target age, yet too childish for older audiences. The Quantum Physics one seemed more appropriate for babies and toddlers.

    17. Kelly

      Wonderful! General Relativity explained in short sentences using simple words. This is a board book and I can say that I learned more about general relativity from this book than I did in all 12 years of school, 4 years of college, and 3 years of grad school. Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention.Loved, loved, loved it!

    18. Magy

      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!*A copy of this book was provided free of charge for an honest review.

    19. Maggie

      I received this book as a giveaway.This is a cute book that takes a complicated subject and breaks it down into simple concepts with simple pictures. Is it really meant for babies or children? Doubtful. But is it a fun tongue-in-cheek book for adults? Certainly. I enjoyed it and learned something!

    20. Jenelle

      So fun to find books that introduce ridiculously high-level concepts at an extremely young age. I enjoy the sense of humor that created these books, as well as the variety it adds to our library of books for our very youngest family members.

    21. Rebecca Light

      I mean, the title is hilarious. It sounds like something from a Portlandia sketch. The concept is sort of ridiculous and I'm not sure it's effective, but hey, if babies can grasp onto things like warped space and compact mass, well done Ferrie.

    22. Dustin

      My children enjoyed the distinctive shapes/colors and were receptive to my explanations of the concepts. I will continue reading and adding to it as well as checking out others in this series of books.

    23. Neeli

      Suitable for school aged children, not babies. And a good synopsis for adults who could not understand the concepts of general relativity.

    24. Mystyne-Marie

      I received this book for free. It is a simple book that explains science terms at a level young children can understand.
