I’m a Neutrino: Tiny Particles in a Big Universe
Outer space is full of mystery; there are parts if the universe that have yet to be discovered and aspects that are so microscopic they cannot be seen by the human eye. This book is an excellent introduction into the complex topic of astrophysics. The talented Illustrator, Ilze Lemesis includes entrancing details in the images while using several different artistic styles; every page is unique, complex, and different from the next. The neutrinos are represented by abstract shapes that contrast beautifully against the black sky and galactic backdrops.

The rhyme scheme and intellectual language combine to create a fun and educational reading adventure. The author encourages readers to continue learning about these scientific aspects with motivational words. Although some of the advanced language is defined, there are many advanced words or concepts that may be unclear to young readers. However, the author provides a surplus of additional information regarding Neutrinos at the end of the book.
