Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Periodic Table introduces budding chemists to the world of the elements as it's never been seen before. Designed to resemble popular networking Web sites, the pages of this book feature "homepages" for each of the chemical elements — complete with witty and informative profiles written by the elements themselves, plus a personally chosen picture.
Adrian Dingle is a high school chemistry teacher and the creator of the award-winning chemistry Web site: Adrian Dingle's Chemistry Pages. His site has been recommended by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse, the BBC, the National Science Teachers Association, and Cornell Theory Center—among many others. Born in England, he has taught in both the United States and United Kingdom and now lives in Atlanta, Georgia, where he teaches at The Westminster Schools. He holds a B.S. and a postgraduate certificate in education from the University of Exeter.

Simon Basher is an artist and designer who has fun playing in the world of contemporary character design. Inspired by a love of simple line work and a rich color palette, his characters fill the gap between edgy manga and the cuteness of Hello Kitty. He lives in England.

What an awesome book and what a fantastic way to get my kiddos excited about the elements! I got it as a present from my daughter who is a middle school student, and is the same age as the grades I teach. We are fighting to draw the elements and writing up storms because now all my reluctant learners want to be a "stylish" and totally cool element!!!

It is a great visual tool tool for my ESL and SPED kiddos. I leave it out for my students to read and they love it, and it is a hot seller at our school book fairs!

I love it, and find something new every time I read it :-)
