The first book follows Pete the Proton and Ned the Neutron as they get together to build…


In fact, YOU are built out protons and neutrons. See? You’re already learning about how awesome subatomic particles are.

It's amazing how quickly children can soak up information about the world around them; colors, numbers, and even incredible detail about the characters in stories...

No matter what age students are, they all face similar difficulties - the most common hurdle hindering their progress is a perception of science and chemistry as intimidating. 

This book is a fun and memorable way to introduce kids to this same content, before they develop that perception!

Whether you're in 5th grade, or college, the basics of chemistry are all the same. The world we live in is made out of essentially three tiny particles: Protons, Neutrons and Electrons.

It might sound crazy, but we're convinced that even a toddler can begin to understand some of these basics of chemistry and science. . . there’s just currently no context in which to teach it to them!

The My First Chemistry Textbook series provides that context to introduce science and chemistry to kids of all ages!

These are stories about those three tiny particles and how they make up the world that we experience everyday.
