It's Elementary!: Putting the crackle into chemistry

Front Cover
Dorling Kindersley Limited, Jun 7, 2007 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 96 pages
This children's book takes the everyday matter of chemistry and transforms it into a subject of wonder, fun and discovery. It's Elementary! is full of amazing facts, fantastic images and an incredible world of elements to explore. From the stone age to twentieth century, readers can follow the story of ever increasing knowledge of what the elements are and how they are in everything around us. All the basics are here, but in a way that readers can relate to, like finding out what elements make the colours in a firework and what's in a bottle of mineral water. It's Elementary! is not just a reference book: it's an interactive book that gets readers thinking and appeals to readers of all ages.
