Product Description

Part of the brilliant and fun Basher Science series, The Periodic Table is actually memorable once you learn about each element! Each element on the table is portrayed as a cute creature that's exemplified by their most prominent traits. Organized by the "families" on the chart, each category has an introductory entry with the illustrations for that chapter assembled on one page, helping kids to see and remember which terms belong to which group. Each creature has its own full-page illustration and entry written from a fun, casual, first-person perspective; children will learn about lithium, hydrogen, strontium, radium, carbon, and more. Each page also notes their symbol, atomic number, atomic weight, color, standard state, classification, density, melting point, boiling point, date of discovery, and a small chart showing where its home on the periodic table is located.128 pages, softcover, with glossary and fold-out poster of the table.

Publisher's Description

Basher Science: The Periodic Table, Elements with Style! created and illustrated by Simon Basher, Written by Adrian Dingle:

The Periodic Table introduces budding chemists to the world of the elements as it's never been seen before. Designed to resemble popular networking Web sites, the pages of this book feature "homepages" for each of the chemical elements -- complete with witty and informative profiles written by the elements themselves, plus a personally chosen picture.

    I bought this for my son's 10th birthday, as he had requested something to teach him more about the periodic table of elements. I don't care for the illustrations (not very interesting to me, tough my son likes them) and our main issue is this book only teaches a select few elements. There are many left out.
