Board book: Baby Loves Quantum Physics

Baby Loves Quantum Physics! Ruth Spiro. Illustrated by Irene Chan. 2017. Charlesbridge. 22 pages. [Source: Review copy]

First sentence: Baby loves Cat! Meow! Sometimes Cat likes to hide. Where is Cat now? Baby wants to find him! Is Cat here? Or here? Cat is in the box!

Premise/plot: Baby has found Cat. Cat is in the box! Will Cat be awake? Will Cat be asleep? In this simple board book, Spiro explains quantum physics in one little sentence: "In quantum physics, until Baby looks in the box, Cat is both asleep and awake."

My thoughts: I really enjoyed this one! I do love cats. I love cats more than science honestly, but a good science documentary usually holds my attention. (I've found that so long as I'm not ever tested on what makes me curious, my curiosity has no limits.) Parents may or may not be familiar with Schrodinger's cat, but either way this one is an enjoyable story.
