Gr 5-8–In the text's opening chapters, readers will gain the background needed to understand the building blocks of the universe: atoms, subatomic particles, elements, and compounds. On welcoming, browsable pages, the book bounces from topics as far ranging as stars to soap. Kids can read the whole book, or a few pages at a time, and be plenty amazed. The boisterous illustrations are informative and have a playful and functional layout. Facts are sometimes broken into boxes such as “Really Cool Science Bit” and “Brain Box.” A few science projects (some serious and others not so) and some jokey warnings, “If you're going to build a nuclear reactor, get some ADULT supervision,” are included. Overall, this is a title sure to find an audience, one that will gain a newfound respect for the elements.–Heather Acerro, Rochester Public Library, MNα(c) Copyright 2013.
