My 3 year old has learned a lot about electricity from this book. The story is well written and very logical.

Our then-3YO was asking a lot of questions about electricity, which we were having trouble answering to his satisfaction. We found the Oscar series of books about basic science concepts and haven't looked back. The illustrations are charming, the stories are sufficiently explanatory without being too dry or dull, and the book is just long enough for a little kid's attention span (and a parent's energy level!). We now have all of the books in this series and our kid repeatedly requests them at bedtime. I hope that the author writes more Oscar books.

I bought this book because I had an assignment in school where I was teacher for a week. I bought this book about 3 days before I needed it. Not only did it come EARLY but it looked like I was the first person to even touch it! ( all of the kids loved it so its a good buy)
