    Perhaps this does not exist, thought I'd ask:
    Asked DD6, if she could learn about anything what would it be. She answered, "portals." (from an elf movie she saw; I told her portals actually may exist.)

    Does anyone know of a physics (how stuff works for 6 year old) book that explains relativity, string theory, portals, etc.?

    Just looking for a fun book that illustrates basic physics principals, Newtonian, quantum, some of the weird stuff in comics that she would find interesting, introduces concepts, but isn't over a 6 year old's head.

    Am I asking for a unicorn here?

    There should be plenty of those types of books at your local library. My DS-at-the-time-6 loved a comic-book-style series that detailed out some of those principles (force and motion, etc.).

    As for relativity, there's a good new Cosmos episode about it that my DS was able to digest. YMMV. smile

    I think the Stephen Hawking series of books for kids would be right up your alley. They are very popular.

    Max axiom has some basic physics topics, but they may be too simple for your purposes, as DS loved them at 3 (and still does at 4).
