Fundamentally helpful

When you're just a little too short to bounce, you might have to use your Mama's physics books! I'm sure this is the best use these books have seen in years! These days, some parents will do anything to get their kids into good schools:)

William Brighty Rands (1823 – 1888)

If the butterfly courted the bee,
And the owl the porcupine;
If churches were built in the sea,
And three times one was nine;
If the pony rode his master,
If the buttercups ate the cows,
If the cat had the dire disaster
To be worried by the mouse;
If mama sold the baby
To a gypsy for half a crown;
If a gentleman was a lady,—
The world would be Upside-Down!
If any or all of these wonders
Should ever come about,
I should not consider them blunders,
For I should be Inside-Out!


  1. Love it! Putting the FUN back into the "Fundamentals of Physics."


  2. This is really sweet. I wanted to hit a "play" button though and watch her :-)
    Been watching too many videos.....

  3. Gosh, the miniature physics prof is now operating her own conveyance!

  4. Thank you for sharing your lovely granddaughter with us. What fun!

  5. I agree with Z...the book is much more useful when closed. I jumped all over my Physics books.
