Children's Literature - Colleen Kessler
Part of the "Why Chemistry Matters" series, this book takes a complex subject and breaks it down into manageable chunks of text and photographs. This is a great book to use as an introduction to a study of atoms and molecules in a middle school science classroom. The topics covered include information about the characteristics of an atom, the electricity present in electrons, and more. It provides an understandable overview of a tough topic. There are charts and tables that further explain the material, and sidebars present interesting facts and trivia. Throughout the book, the author highlights scientists whose works have contributed to our understanding of atoms and molecules. There are also some easy activities, like dissolving salt in water, for kids to try on their own. On top of the great information found in this book, it features a user-friendly glossary, index, and web-finder. Kids can look up difficult words, find specific information quickly, and locate web sources where they can learn more about chemistry. Reviewer: Colleen Kessler
