Call me weird, but I’m the most proud of our parenting when Aliceana does things like adds a verse to “Wheels on the bus” about the noises the zombie makes when chasing after it, when the internet guy comes to our house and she tells us he has “Hair like Han Solo” or when we go to the museum and she sees a mummy and immediately tells us it’s the bad guy from the train in that one episode of Doctor Who. We’re definitely raising her a bit geeky, and it makes life a bit more fun.
Honestly science is one of those subjects that I wasn’t a fan of in school, but now as a parent, I’m obsessed with conducting our own science experiments. We’ve conducted experiments like germinating seeds, creating an ecosystem in a bottle, and we even made play-doh electrical currents. By starting out this early, I hope that we can keep science fun for Aliceana.
That brings us to My First Science Textbook. In the first adorable book of the series you’ll follow Pete the Proton (he’s positively charged to meet you!) and Ned the Neutron.
My First Science Textbook: Protons and Neutrons explains the relationship between neutrons, protons, and even electrons. It teaches you where you’ll find each (Spoiler alert: They’re everywhere, because they make up everything.)
I love that these books turn something that can be extremely complex into something that even younger kids can easily understand.
Now if only every textbook rhymed and had adorable illustrations.
Genius Games is a company that knows how to make science fun. They’ve already created a line of science card games; Linkage, Peptide, Ion, and their fourth Covalence will be available to purchase this Fall. They’re extremely successful at fulfilling Kickstarter’s, I should know, I backed Ion last year! Not only do they create awesome products that are both educational and fun, they’re also awesome people that I’m so glad to have met last Fall at ChiTag.
You can back My First Science Textbook starting today! There are a variety of really affordable pledge levels with rewards from ebooks, to physical books, to physical book sets, to spending a day with the Genius Games team (which I 1000% recommend, remember, I said they’re awesome.)
