Top Ten Physics Books for Kids of all ages
Understanding Physics should be an everyday skill for everyone, after all its affects are all around us. I know that as a child, I was somewhat put off by the mere mention of the word physics. Yet as soon as I was shown a little of what it meant, I was totally captivated.
I have selected these Top 10 Physics books for kids for their content, readability and suitability for children of all ages. I believe that they will help inspire your child to be curious and explore. hope that you enjoy them too.

What is Physics
What is Physics shows what physics is, how it works and why it is vital to everyday life. Emphasis on fun with great explanations.
What is Physics all about?
A short description of Physics would be, it is the study of matter and energy. But a more descriptive definition might be, it is the study of how matter and energy relate to each other, and how they affect each other over time and through space. Now, I don't know about you - but when I was told this as young school child, the words just washed over me and I was left feeling that I still didn't really understand. I much preferred it, and understood it better when a science teacher took me to one side and described it as: Did you ever wonder how the universe began? Would you like to know what it is made of? Have you ever thought of what rules make it behave as it does? - Well this is what Physics is trying to work out.
Just three simple little questions, but they somehow turned a subject that I found mystifying, into something much more understandable.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.— Albert Einstein
