This book actually teaches science correctly (on a baby level) is smart and very cute. My Dad also made a point of asking me to write a review pointing out how nicely the book was constructed. "First rate, on nice thick Yardstick cardstock!"
On another note, The baby truly enjoys Grandpa's excitement about the book, Listening to Grandpa read, and watching Grandpa point out the words and the overall story.
It is also scientifically inaccurate. In one illustration the number of electrons and protons to do not match, but more importantly it is confined to the Bohr model. I wouldn't expect an explanation of probability waves, but I think there was a missed opportunity. Quantum mechanics has so many built-in mysteries that could have been a great premise for a creative story. This has no story at all.
