What inspired you to write this book?
When my first daughter turned one year old in 2018, I wanted to add STEM books to her bookshelf, but I found that there were not many chemistry-related books available for babies and toddlers. I majored in chemistry in college and got an advanced degree in it – I also married a chemical engineer – so science is in my daughter’s bones. I found an array of children’s science books but they did not focus on chemistry. I noticed a void and I knew I wanted to fill it.
I had my first idea for creating a chemistry alphabet book in 2016 but did not make much progress on it until 2018. I have written scientific papers before but writing children-book level science was way different for me – there was such a big learning curve!
My books have very engaging and they have colorful, fun illustrations that children love, which really draws kids into the book. Each page of my book have a different science concept on it and it is explained in a way that children can understand and the pictures are drawn in a way to make the concept relatable to children – making hard concepts relatable to children is the hardest and most important part and I think my books achieve that.
I love writing my science books because they expose children to different areas of science and my goal is to get children excited about science. My hope is that my books are so fun to read that kids do not even realize how much they are learning. Introducing science ideas in books help familiarize children to abstract concepts and then they do not seem as obscure when they encounter them in their school’s curriculum.
My goal as an author is to encourage people to learn more about science – whether as an adult or child. They are reading my book to read things that they usually do not read about and if they happen to find that they like what they are reading, I achieved my main goal – to spark an interest in science
Meet the Author:
When Christi Sperber was pregnant with her first daughter, Emma, she wanted to add STEM books to Emma’s bookshelf. But the Mom who has a Master’s in Chemistry noticed that there weren’t many chemistry-related books available for babies and toddlers. The few that did exist, she noticed, weren’t factually correct. That’s when Sperber had an idea: launch her own publishing company - Nanoscale Scientists Publishing LLC – to introduce young kids to the wonderful world of science at an early age.
