    Making the Periodic Table Fun!

    An exciting way to teach kids about the periodic table. My daughter, who is twelve, loves science and could not stop reading this book. It has colorful, funny pictures and descriptions of the elements. My only negative comment would be that it doesn't include every single element and my daughter noticed this too.

    LOVE this!

    My 8 year old son received this as a present from dear old mom. He's just beginning to learn some chemistry both at home and at school and has shown much interest. He adores this book. Additionally, his 6 year old sister is beginning to show some interest in it as well. She has a particular fondness for Boron. I recommend this for children around the age of 10. I can see where the writing may be a little juvenile for teens and tweens. The grownups at my house think it's funny and insightful while teaching at the same time. Thank you for such a wonderful book!

    My 11-yr-old loves this book (and the series)!

    It's really peeked his interest in chemistry and the world around him. I recommend the whole series for this age group!

    Non threatening way to learn Chemistry

    I bought this book for my son who is in 5th grade and interested in Chemistry. The writing or explanation feels like it is intended for young children, but older kids will enjoy it too.

    Great for Middle School

    I purchased this book for my classroom and it turned out my daughter found it useful in Science! The drawings in the book reminded her of the anime books, captivating everyone!

    Who said chemistry had to be boring? (I'm sure no one has ever said this, but someone sure forgot to tell my science teacher!) Basher and Adrian Dingle have come together to create an entertaining and valuable resource for students with their version of the 111 elements. <BR/><BR/>Whether you're studying chemistry in school right now or not, you're sure to get a kick out of the full-color illustrations inside the pages of this book. Plus, you might actually learn something, as each element is fully described in detail: the name, its symbol, its atomic number, its atomic weight, its color, its standard state, and its classification. <BR/><BR/>The elements are also broken down into eleven separate categories, including the Alkali Metals, the Transition Elements, the Boron Elements, the Carbon Elements, the Nitrogen Elements, the Oxygen Elements, the Halogen Elements, the Noble Gases, the Lanthanides and Actinides, and the Transactinides. <BR/><BR/>This is the perfect, easy-to-use reference guide for people of all ages, and the included poster can easily be used for an educating, stylish decorating tool. Who knew elements could be so interesting??

    Wonderful!

    As a science nut and chemistry fanatic, I was thrilled to find a book that explained the wonderful world of elements to the younger crowd. I bought one for my step-daughter, one for my own daughter (still a baby!), and will be purchasing one for a niece as she begged for one after I talked through a few elements last week.
