Baby Loves Science

Why Science?

Science is everywhere. In watching a bird fly, floating boats in the bathtub, even dropping crackers from the table, young children are experimenting with gravity and physics. As the author of the Baby Loves Science series (perfect for preschool, too!) my goal is to help make complex concepts both accessible and meaningful, and also share ideas about how to turn everyday experiences into fun learning opportunities for little ones. Through these books I hope to encourage parents, caregivers, and educators to explore the world through the eyes of a child and have fun making discoveries together.
