The second issue is that the scientists are not named. Why not give a 1st-grader enough credit to remember important names like Galileo Galilei or Isaac Newton ? They'll obviously come up again later in their science education. (A third nitpick is that the also-unnamed Hubble Space Telescope uses a large mirror, not a large lens. But why not just get it right ?) I do hope more in this otherwise charming series follows, but with better fact checking, and giving just a little more credit to its readers.
One little quibble: book indicates Neptune was found due to irregularities in Saturn's orbit, and then Uranus due to perturbations in Neptune's. In fact, Uranus is closer to Saturn and was found first, and then Neptune later.
