This 32-page book is a wonderful way to introduce science and nature to children. The three main characters in this book are Priti, a proton; Ning, a neuton; and Ellie, an electron. Together, they form The EnteleTrons®.
One day, the world of The EnteleTrons® has changed. What has happened? Then the team discovers the reason - the color 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 remaining colors of the rainbow if they know where green could have gone, and the truth transpires. Through an engaging story, children start to learn in an easily-understood manner about science, nature, colors, rainbows, and prisms, plus the value of cooperation within a group.
The back pages contain The EnteleLab®, a fun workshop where The EnteleTrons® find necessary tools to solve the problem. Also included are website links for activities and supplementary learning resources. However, there is much more to this book - woven in the pages are important life lessons about working together and respect for others, plus many examples of alliteration.
Young people will love helping The EnteleTrons® figure out where Green went, while exploring the visible spectrum in a prism. Through character interaction, The EnteleTrons® show everyone the value of cooperation.
