It seemed so natural for those that knew Sir Isaac Newton to believe he discovered the concept of gravity and all its implications by sitting under a tree and having one simply fall to the ground. What would be for most -- something which is nothing spectacular -- was a starting point of curiosity that drove him to amazing discovery. He was the leading scientist of his age but also a devoted reader of philosophy, religion, and history. His scientific writings were the most famous of his day and he is credited with discovering gravity, the scientific method, space-time, and his work remains the bedrock on which modern physics was built. After his death he was widely published in other disciplines. Among the new releases this week is a terrific biography: Isaac Newton. Your kids will love it and it is a great edition to read together.
Newton's life is so fascinating we hope it will spark the curiosity of your children to learn how fun and exciting science can be. Our editor's pick this week can keep this momentum going: Dr. Why-Physics written by Lydia Light. It builds from Newton and gravity to a concept every kids loves: roller coasters. You need gravity and a keen understanding of physics to make the ride fast, safe, and fun. This is but one of the fun things to learn about together in this book as your kids become avid new readers.
