My First Book of Quantum Physics

Publisher: Button Books

This is an absolutely fascinating, head-scratching look at quantum physics for older children, which may have parents secretly consulting their dummies' guide in case of further questions.

After all, what do we even mean by "quantum physics"? This book is an illustrated guide to the mysterious tiny particles that make up everything around us: from trees, buildings, food, light, water, air and even ourselves. The science behind this – quantum physics – pushes us to the very boundaries of what we know about science, reality and the structure of the universe.

Sounds big and heavy? Well, it is. But why not? Children often take to the Big Questions, and the weird and wonderful, better than adults – they're still full of wild curiosity and a love of asking 'Why?'

My First Book of Quantum Physics is packed with a great deal of information, expressed in fun and vibrant graphic design. The subjects covered cram an awful lot into a children's picture book, from Isaac Newton to the CERN accelerator, and so this is a book to be dipped in and out of, with plenty of time for digestion inbetween. However, it is an enjoyably ambitious read that will stretch your child's imagination and help them see a different side to science.
