Praise For…


"Start ’em young with this STEM-centric board-book that promotes science literacy" — Los Angeles Times

"Simple illustrations and simple explanations to launch your future rocket scientist." — NPR, Science Friday

" Lively explorations of physics, technology, and space." — School Library Journal

"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

"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



"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! " — iHeartLiteracy

" 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

" 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
