Chris Ferrie



ABC's of Physics
is a 2017 children's book by Chris Ferrie that takes physics concepts and explains them to children using simple illustrations and easy to understand language. ABC's of Physics is a 26-page long board book that is suitable for babies, toddlers and is part of Chris Ferrie's Baby University Book Series. The Baby University Book Series is all about educating your child about the weird world of science. There are books on Rocket Science, General Relativity, Optical Physics, Newtonian Physics, Mathematics and Science for babies.

Chris Ferrie is a physicist, a mathematician, a father of four and a senior lecturer at the University of Technology, Sydney. He believes that it is never too early to start teaching your child about science and introducing them to STEM learning.

What is STEM learning? STEM is an educational curriculum that focuses on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

ABC's of Physics has three reading levels. Level 1 is called Baby Basics and keeps it nice and simple "A is for Atom" for example. Level 2 is called Toddler Time and explains what an Atom is and Level 3 is called Let's Learn More and has a small paragraph which explains the concept in a little bit more detail. Each page also has a simple illustration to explain the concept being discussed.

ABC's of Physics starts off with things like Atoms and Black Holes and then moves onto subjects like Diffraction, Fusion, Gravity, Quantum, Relativity, String Theory and Thermodynamics. I got this book because I thought it would be good to introduce my daughter to science, which it did. But it also interested me as well. As I flipped through it I found myself learning new things and enjoying the experience.

If you like the sound of ABC's of Physics there is also an ABC's of Mathematics and ABC's of Science available as well.
