An idea for a science/environmental children's book?

A few months ago, for fun, I took a course on "Writing Books for Children." It was pretty good, in that it kind of forced me to sit down and come up and work through an idea. Or at least, work through it enough so that it was close to the stage of maybe querying publishers.

For readers who have followed this blog for a while, you probably know that children's books have always fascinated me, especially with two young children in my own household. It's probably why I've written about it on occasion (see here, here, here, and here for examples). There's something altogether amazing when you read a great children's book to your kids, especially so (for me anyway) when the book has some science in it.

Anyway, embedded below is a slideshow of my book idea. Apologies for the simplistic art, but I am curious about what you think of the book conceptually. I'm game also to submit it somewhere, although to be honest, I'm not sure if the idea is good enough and (as the case may be) I'm not entirely sure where best to send such queries.

Nice! The last page where it says "And kind of silly" is classic. And unfortunately, so very true.
