    My kids's interest in science was sparked by this book. They are now 7, 5 & 3 and still love flipping through the pages. They recite the periodic table and ask me questions like do you know the chemical symbol for chalk? The illustrations draw the reader in. The text is not dumbed down and the drawings are great. A great primer for the budding scientist. You can't start them too young.

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. 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. 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??

    The Periodic Table ELEMENTS WITH STYLE by Adrian Dingle was a short, informative, and colorful book about the periodic tables. I've always had a lot of trouble with the table and all the boring terms felt like they were being jammed into my head. This book has given me a good review to help get me comfortable again.

However, this book makes learning the periodic tables have a sense of humor while still grasping a lot of the content. When something is funny or notable, (at least for me) its a lot easier to remember. This book might help you with your elememts and it is defenitely something you should check out. Adrian uses fun descriptions of the elements to helps the elements describe their features. It isn't just a super boring textbook listing everything using vocabulary that you have to remember as well. The tip of the nail you have to drill into your brain is softer. This book, along with the whole series has great reviews from child magazines and newspapers. It's a great and unique change in learning approach. This is also a book I recommend for all ages because no matter how old you are, it can be hard to remember. Maybe you're learning them in class or you child is learning about them and need help when you forgot everything. This is defenitely the book to go for.

The illustrations often give a sort of visual aid that helps the young reader remember its characteristic (helium looks like a balloon, arsenic looks sick to his stomach, etc.) Basher books are appropriate for any young child interested in the subject matter. Even if a child is not reading yet, the illustrations are enchanting. If you have a listener who is interested in categories and lists and how things work, this is a nice way to introduce him/her to chemistry.

    Okay, so my 8 year old is on a serious chemistry kick. I came across this book at the library and he LOVES it. Like, he hasn't set it down for 3 straight days kind of love. Little anime characters represent the elements (not all of them to his chagrin) tell in a fun way the characteristics of the elements. A really fun book for a kid who loves science.

Teaching the periodic elements may seem boring but this book has a way of personifying each element. For example, the elects Rubidium that is in the chapter The Alkali Metals has a cartoon figure with a hood, cape and mask. The description states, "I am a master of disguise...I'm such a prankster". These cartoons and humanistic comparisons really engage even the most reluctant science reader. While the target audience is for middle school, I would find this a great asset to even a high school science teacher. This is a compact paperback book with lots of colorful visuals and even includes a full size poster. This book makes learning about the periodic elements fun and engaging. Highly recommend for all ages.

However this is not advised for people with a higher understanding of chemestry as the only thing I gained through reading this book was a cute version of the periodic table that I photocopied. This periodic table even has each classification for the family groups of elements in different colour! This really is the elements in style.

    Elements with Style is a great approach to making the teaching of elements tangible for kids, aside from letting them experience the real thing and considering the reactive reality of many elements, that wouldn't be advisable! This book was a gift from a student of mine.

    I really like learning new things but really struggle with understanding adult non-fiction books as they tend to make things too complicated. As this is aimed at children I found it a lot easier to understand and I feel like if I read a more grown up book on the periodic table now I'd understand it a lot better than I would have before I read this.

    I bought this book when my son was in second grade. I did't expect him to memorize the periodic table (which he didn't) or to understand the properties of elements (which he didn't), but he did learn what an element is, which elements are heavier and which are lighter, and some of their properties. When he encounters the periodic table in his school, it won't seem like a foreign language to him. I bought this book when my son was in second grade.

    I absolutely love this book! It has lots of trivia and has a very digestible format, especially for younger kids. I actually read the 2018 updated version, and I would suggest finding the most recently published versions, because those will be the most accurate and informative. The illustrations are adorable (especially Plutonium), and each page offers a great at-a-glance summary of the element.

It will show a cartoon image of it and describes how it is constantly being use to perform good things. It describes how it will cause you to get horrible diseases and it describes how it describes the statistics about the elements including its weight.It combines them into categories that describe each element. They even include gases that are toxic and non- toxic. The elements have a unique place on the periodic table because of their importance to scientists. They are the main objects that help make medicine and inventions. This book is really interesting because it describes how it is like to use these sort of metals and what to beware of if you touch them. It describes the color and chemical formula too. It is uses mixtures and compounds to form other substances that may or may not be on the periodic table. They explain how it has caused a spread of diseases back in history and it even includes how it is causing people to die even today. There are cures for these diseases and there are still a spread of these deadly diseases: Beryllium," A small amount of me in your body can give you berylliosis, a disease that inflames the lungs and is linked to lung cancer." This is a non-fiction book that describe the periodic elements , but if you happen to become curious about other subjects like biology, astronomy, chemistry, physics, planet earth, and rocks/ minerals you should check out the school library located on the second floor. You may borrow those books and learn about more things.

Designed to resemble social networking web sites, The Periodic Table gives each chemical element its own homepage providing basic facts such as atomic weight, standard state and boiling point as well as a quirky profile written by each element. The portraits, such as Gold with its bling and Lead dressed like a Roman centurion, reinforce the information about each element. For example, Magnesium tells us, "I’m happy to mix in any social gathering of the elements, making friends with anyone, even moody hydrogen. I’m sparky, and I always cause a reaction!" The book also puts the effects of each element in context of day-to-day life. We learn that sodium gives streetlights their orange glow and the dangers of chlorine. "You’ve gotta give me some respect! I’m a mean, green killing machine. One of the halogen gang, I’m a toxic gas with a horrible history." Dingle and Basher have put together a book that will make you laugh, smile and share what you’ve learned. Quite a success for a chemistry book! --Andrea From ICPL Staff Picks Blog

As one would expect from the title, it's a high-level overview of various elements (though it's not complete, obviously. The biggest deficiency is in the radioactive world; the only element higher than uranium to get a page to itself is plutonium) with doodle-like superhero characters who illustrate, sometimes subtly, some of the properties of the element in question. Should be good for the 4-8 set, though I'd think once you get older than that, they'll want material that goes into a little more detail. And contains information on Yttrium. ***
