My First Book of Science BLC1016


My First Book Of Quantum Physics The world of quantum physics is an amazing place, where quantum particles can do weird and wonderful things, acting totally unlike the objects we experience in day-to-day life. How can atoms exist in two places at once? And just how can a cat be dead and alive at the same time? Find out more with this entertaining illustrated guide to the fascinating, mysterious world of quantum physics.

My First Book of Relativity  introduces complex science to children through bright illustrations and amusing text. Einstein’s theory of relativity is one of the cornerstones of modern physics but it requires a total rethink of our notions of time and space. Strange things happen in a relative universe: length and time are not fixed and depend upon your frame of reference. If you move at high speed, time slows down, space contracts and weight increases. So a period of time for someone on Earth that lasts for hundreds of years may only be a couple of hours for someone travelling in a rocket close to the speed of light. It’s mind-boggling stuff, but the theory of relativity has a real impact on our world today. A car’s GPS navigation system, for example, uses information received from orbiting satellites and is designed to account for the fact that time ticks at a different rate on these satellites than it does on the ground. Without allowing for relativity’s effects, after just a day, your whereabouts according to GPS could be up to 8km from your actual location. 
My First Book of the Cosmos Cosmology is closely related to astronomy and studies the origin and evolution of the universe. As with Eduard and Sheddad’s first book published by Button Books My First Book of Quantum Physics, My First Book of the Cosmos introduces children to what is an incredibly complex subject in a fun and entertaining way, using highly attractive and absorbing illustrations to explain the basic principals and concepts of this complex and fascinating subject.

My First Book of Electromagnetism tells the story of humankind’s growing understanding of the forces around us, from Thales of Miletus’s first experiments with magnetic attraction in 600 BCE to Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell unifying the fields of magnetism and electricity to develop the theory of electromagnetism. At various stages in this fascinating journey the reader can find out how to make their own experiments, including making their own electroscope to test for electric charge and how to construct a working motor from safety pins, wire, sticky tape, a magnet and a battery.  
My First Book of Microbes: Viruses, Bacteria, Fungi, and More You’ll discover what they are, where they come from and what they do, as well as which ones are good and which can be harmful. Especially pertinent are the clear explanations about how viruses spread, the role of antibodies and the importance of vaccines – essential understanding for us all during this time of the COVID-19 pandemic; in fact, there’s a whole spread dedicated to COVID-19. Packed with clever analogies that make understanding a difficult topic easy, this STEM title is perfect for young budding scientists with an active and enquiring mind and for people of any age who are interested in learning about the natural world and the human body.



我的第一本相對論: 通常我們會認為,時間對每個人都是一樣的:不論是對我們而言,我們的鄰居,莫斯科的居民,還是火星的岩石。時間也不會因為我們是靜止還是移動中而有所不同。但是一百多年前,阿爾伯特‧愛因斯坦意識到,時間並非到處都是一樣的,而是取決於我們移動的速度。因此,如果我們能夠以接近光速飛行,我們將看到不可思議的事情發生。
