Chris Ferrie on Baby University
Boffins Books, The City of Perth Library, the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies and Research at UWA are proud to present an author talk with Chris Ferrie as he speaks about Baby University and the importance of beginning education early for children.
When it comes to baby books, farm animals and construction equipment abound. But where are the board books about science and maths? In a world where toddlers operate smart phones and computers before they learn to walk, is it really too soon to teach them Newton’s three laws of motion or Einstein’s theory of general relativity?
Chris Ferrie’s Baby University series bring the most complex scientific ideas into an explanation that anyone can understand, including your three year old. Introducing babies to math and science promotes literacy in these subjects later in life when they encounter them in school. Ferrie is on a mission to treat babies like the geniuses they are.
