Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

“Terrific . . . Page after page shows gorgeous, swirling color set in the blackness of infinity . . . Against these stunning visuals is a retelling of the classical myth of Icarus.”
–Meghan Cox Gurdon, Wall Street Journal

“Do your part to get kids psyched about science with physicist Brian Greene’s Icarus at the Edge of Time, a futuristic fable that will take you and your budding scientists to the ends of the universe and back. Full-color photos from the Hubble Space Telescope bring the beauty of the cosmos right to your fingertips.”
Parade Magazine

“A perfect book for smart parents to read to smart children. Plus, it will make all concerned even smarter.”
–Tim Follos, Washington Post Express

“Moving and successful . . . Beautifully illustrated . . . The images frame the deep and complex thought at the heart of the tale . . . [Greene] weaves the wonder of modern physics through the fabric of his story–and thus enables his readers to confront its strangeness themselves.”
–Thomas Levenson, Seed Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

From one of America's leading physicists—a moving and visually stunning futuristic reimagining of the Icarus fable written for kids and those journeying with them toward a deeper appreciation of the cosmos. With a minimum of words set on 34 full color boardbook pages, Icarus travels not to the sun, but to a black hole, and in so doing poignantly dramatizes one of Einstein's greatest insights.

Unlike anything Brian Greene has previously written, Icarus at the Edge of Time uses the power of story, not pedagogy, to communicate viscerally one small part of the strange reality that has emerged from modern physics. Designed by Chip Kidd, with spectacular images from the Hubble Space Telescope, it's a short story that speaks to curiosity and wisdom in a universe we've only begun to fathom.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gorgeous and thought provoking 23 octobre 2011

I bought this book for my 5 year old son. I heard an NPR interview with the author Brian Green(who mostly writes books for grown-ups about string theory, etc. I share his passion for science and science education. I was a little worried that it would be too babyish since it's listed as a "board-book". Don't be fooled...it is appropriate for about a 5-10 year old age group (maybe even a bit older would appreciate it). It is very beautiful inside and the text is pretty "grown-up". The images are of various nebulae and galaxies, many of which are thought to contain black holes. The story is about a futuristic journey to a far-away planet being undertaken by several generations of families. One of the ships inhabitants is a 14 year-old boy who wants to explore beyond his limited surroundings. He leaves ship on a run-about to go explore a black hole and the consequences illustrate the science of black holes. My son likes it a lot. I've been having to read it again and again for several days, now. He's asking great questions about black holes, galaxies and gravity. Most of which, I can't answer (I'm a biologist), so we are looking up lots of cool stuff online. Anyway, I highly recommend this book- it's gorgeous and thought provoking.

A simply amazing introduction to astronomy that will be enjoyed by adults as well as children. The gorgeous illustrations are all actual images taken with the Hubble Space Telescope! In brief, the story is a retelling of the Greek myth of Icarus, the boy who ignored his father's warning to fly low, and flew so close to the sun that his wings melted and he crashed. This modern Icarus has a happier, less lethal, outcome when he gets too close to a black hole, but he still has to deal with the irreparable consequences of his adventure.

Children will enjoy the adventure story, while adults can ponder the deeper meaning of individuation and the quest for knowledge, and the price to be paid for both. Plus, this story offers one of the most user friendly examples of time dilation and Einstein's General Theory of Relativity that I've ever seen. If your kids ask you physics questions for which you have no answer, Wikipedia is a great resource. "Icarus at the Edge of Time" is so good that I actually looked up time dilation, even though I've managed to avoid physics for over 50 years. I'm definitely keeping this one for any grandchildren I may have someday. This is going to be my next book club recommendation!

There needs to be more children's books just like this. The images alone are educational and beautifully captivating. This short story is a perfect way to introduce children to complex concepts of space, time, and gravity in a fun and exciting way that is easy to understand.
