Protons & Neutrons, Electrons, and The Atom are the first three books in the My First Science Textbooks series and they introduce kids to science and the building blocks of matter. The books are written in rhyme and narrated by adorable characters like Pete the Proton, Ned the Neutron and Ellie the Electron.
