If you've ever played with building blocks, you know a bit about how atoms work already. They're the building blocks of nature. In fact, everything in nature is made up of the super-small particles called atoms. This accessible book is an inviting look at the basic units of all matter. Young scientists will discover how atoms combine to form elements and how they're used to produce energy. Fascinating fact boxes and helpful diagrams take the mystery out of essential chemistry concepts.

School Library Journal

School Library Journal

Budding chemists and their teachers will find this series quite informative. The text alternates with images to break the presentation into digestible chunks. Captions with each image offer additional facts to extend the topic. For instance, on the page illustrating various bonds, readers learn, “All compounds are molecules, but not all molecules are compounds!” Photos are clear and relate directly to the text. Other graphics are well labeled for easy identification. The image of a geyser with water and steam spraying out is a wonderful example from States of Matter, and the book goes beyond solids, liquids, and gases to discuss plasma as the fourth state. The information is divided between the books so that one can build onto the next—Atoms, then Molecules, and so on—but the texts also work well independently. Solid coverage of each topic makes this a helpful reference series.
