    Pete the Proton and Ned the Neutron are just about inseparable. Together, they build the entire universe!

    Protons and Neutrons

    Atoms are the essential building blocks for everything in the universe. From the water people drink, to the hair on our heads, to the books we read—they’re all made of protons, neutrons, and electrons. Pete is a proton, which makes him positively charged to wake up in the morning. Ned is a neutron, which makes him a little more, well… neutral. Together, they build everything we see in the universe!

    Pete and Ned like to spend their time on their own playground in the nucleus. If you try to pull them apart, their reaction is explosively energetic. What else do these two best friends like to do? Come along and find out.

    A My First Science Textbook title, Protons and Neutrons shows readers a subatomic world through the eyes of a relatable personality. Written by Mary Wissinger, illustrated by Harriet Kim Anh Rodis, and published by Science, Naturally!
