Most kids are born scientists. They love exploring their environment, testing out its boundaries, and asking a million questions about how the world works. Of course, sometimes this leads them to taste-test pieces of equipment on the playground. But in general, it’s a wonderful thing to encourage your kid’s innate curiosity about space, the sea, the weather, and every other topic under the sun. And these books that will turn your kids into science lovers will keep your little ones’ attention for years to come. They may even help you answer some of the many, many questions that your kids throw out on a daily basis.
By encouraging a love of chemistry, physics, and astronomy at an early age, you can set up your kid for future success in school (and maybe even a STEM career). Because no matter what, your kid will benefit from having a basic understanding of the forces that rule the universe. Being able to grasp what makes the wind blow or the stars shine will keep encouraging that curiosity. So whether you’re a professional chemist or someone who hasn’t thought about physics since high school, these books can help you explain these fascinating concepts to your kids.
