Overview

Eddie the Electron by Melissa Rooney, Harry Pulver

Eddie the Electron wants to educate kids everywhere about what it's like to be an electron! He's cute, super enthusiastic, ambitious, smaller than the tip of a pencil and he doesn't want to be confused with a proton or an atom. Feeling stuck with his unexciting fellow electron Erwin, Eddie finds himself with way too much spare time on his hands and longing for adventure outside of the helium balloon where he lives. Just what lengths will he go to be free? There's only one way to find out! Come along with us and learn about life in Eddie's world.

About the Author

Before writing children’s books, Melissa (Bunin) Rooney grew up in Martinsville, VA, attended the College of William and Mary, and earned her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina.
One of her passions is introducing scientific concepts to children and fueling their interest, especially when they don’t immediately understand. After all, the things we don’t understand are the most intriguing, and contemplating them results in scientific and technological advances (not to mention employment!).

I bought the book with my 9 year old in mind, and I wasn't too sure my 5 year old would understand much. Boy was I wrong! My 5 year old LOVES the book and asks for it every night at bedtime so he can laugh out loud at the funny illustrations and cheer for Eddie to escape from Erwin, his boring orbit-mate. Meanwhile, my 9 year old impressed her teacher with her knowledge of electrons, protons and neuclei, all after only one reading of the story. I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone with kids that like funny stories (and whose kids don't?).

My grand kids have loved this book from the first time they saw it -- the two strange balls on front got their attention, and the black background didn't hurt. The plot is great for toddlers -- just skip the details. They still liked it when they were older, because we now read the details they'd been wondering about. It is well worth the $. I just wish they printed it in hardback.

I love this book because it teaches my kids scientific concepts at an early age. Plus the story line isn't boring -- on the contrary, my kids were totally engaged...they like to read the last couple of pages again and again (they are written in a 'SURPRISE!' kind of way). For my toddler, I don't read a lot of the beginning of the book -- just the first couple of sentences/page, so he gets an idea of what an electron is -- but I read all of the second part of the book, which is where most of the plot lies, and he loves the way Eddie talks to him, and the way the book ends. My 8 year old can read this book herself and often reads it to her little brother. She gets the science and likes explaining it to me. She is definitely interested in electrons, atoms, and 'what we're made of' now. This book has started an interest in science for the whole family :)

My kids (5 and 7 YO) love this book. My 7 YO can read it herself, and my 5 YO can read a few of the pages containing only 1 or 2 sentences. They both love just looking at the pictures, which pretty much tell the plot of the story on their own. They think the illustrations are funky, and they like the character of Eddie the electron. Since we read this book, they have taken a special interest in electricity and ask, when I turn on a light for instance, 'is Eddie up there?' This is definitely the kind of children's book that parents want for their kids -- it teaches SCIENCE while telling an entertaining story. The kids don't even know they're learning.
