Where’s Green? (The EnteleTrons Series) by Renee Heiss & Gary A. Stewart

 

A wonderful way of introducing science and nature to children.

Written by Renee Heiss & Gary A. Stewart, illustrated by Fay Cofrancesco

 

 

 

 

 

The three main characters in this book are Priti a proton, Ning a neuton and Ellie an electron.

One day, their world looks different, why, what has happened? Then they discover the reason, green is missing! Where could it have gone?  It’s Priti, Ning and Ellie’s task to find out what has happened, and why. Eventually they decide to ask the primary colours if they know where green could have gone, and the truth transpires.

Through an engaging story, children start to learn in an easily absorbed manner about science, nature, primary colours, how rainbows are made and prisms. The back pages contain the EnteleLab, web site links for activities and idea’s for a game. However, there is much more to this book, woven in the pages are important life lessons, about working together, respect for others, and our place in the universe.

This is a bright, cleverly thought out book, beautifully illustrated and appealing to children. I wish it had been out when my children were young!
