Just not right for this adult; might be really educational and rather fun for children, though.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to know all there is about elements that are in the periodic table. Keep in mind though, the book doesn't talk about all the elements but does touch on 60 plus elements that are considered more common.

This book is broken down into pages where each element is introduced and talked about, even represented by an anime-style character. They talk specifically about the element's symbol, atomic number, weight, color, standard state, and classifications. They even go so far as to talk about its qualities and uses, when it was first discovered, what its first known use was, density, melting, and boiling point. This information was great and made it more interesting than simply looking at the periodic table, which was also available as a foldout in the book.

I loved this because it made it more interesting to read. It is also great for visual learners with nice illustrations. It was a fun way to learn more about the periodic table and I think that students will love it.

The Periodic Table: Elements with Style! is a non-fiction science book about the periodic table. It mentions the groups within the elements, and gives multiple characteristics of the popular elements. This book would be great for middle school students, when starting to learn about the periodic table. The book has great illustration and is very easy to follow along.

Astronomy: Out of this world is a great non-fiction book for middle schoolers in a science classroom. It talks about the solar system and how everything works. It also mentions all the planets, and multiple finds like the milky way and black hole. This book would be great for students when learning about space and astronomy.
