Gravity Tree: The True Story of a Tree That Inspired the World

product image
$17.99

From Emmy Award-winning journalist Anna Crowley Redding comes a captivating nonfiction picture book that explores the fabled apple tree that inspired Isaac Newton's theory of gravity. From a minor seed to a monumental icon, it inspired the world's greatest minds, including Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.

A sweet windfall of history and inspiration. --Kirkus (starred review)

This picture book may resonate with science-minded children. --Booklist

A tree may seem like a rather ordinary thing. But hundreds of years ago, a tree was about to embark on an extraordinary journey. And it all started with just a speck of a seed. . . .

It began in the 1600s with a seed that became the tree that grew the apple that fell right before Isaac Newton's eyes. This seemingly simple event sparked one of the greatest scientific discoveries--Newton's theory of gravity! A chain reaction of ideas and discoveries followed from the likes of Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, who traveled to the place where these scientific journeys began--Isaac's tree.

From rocketing into space to adorning the queen's carriage, the Gravity Tree's unexpectedly remarkable and true life story is a tale for the ages. Award-winning journalist Anna Crowley Redding unearths the story of how something so small could change the world. The Gravity Tree is a beautiful nonfiction picture book to share at home or in the classroom.
