Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
"The Elements" series describes the characteristics, sources, and everyday uses of an element along with its discoverers, history, and importance to our lives. "Did you know?" sections explain how fluorine got its name and some of the more interesting uses of this element, such as making Teflon and artificial blood, There are diagrams of the element's atom and a quick "Facts" chart. The book's photographs are of people working with fluorine in health settings, storage tanks for the highly reactive gas, and numerous industrial uses. The straightforward text ends with the periodic table. This section covers chemical reactions and writing an equation and balancing. This would be known material to high school students of chemistry, but new to most middle school readers. This series would appeal to a slightly younger reader. Table of contents, glossary, and index are included. 2004, Benchmark Books/Marshall Cavendish, Ages 11 to 16.
