Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 4^-6. From the publisher's First Books: Chemical Elements series, these volumes feature the origin, qualities, atomic structure, and usefulness of individual elements. Full-color photographs, charts, and period prints appear throughout the books. Most of the information is presented in a straightforward way, but each book also characterizes its subject in human terms. According to Fitzgerald, iron is dull to look at but strong underneath, like Superman disguised as Clark Kent. Nitrogen is like the shy guy at the party but "capable of fantastic things." The imaginative metaphors and coy humor would suit an even younger audience, but some of the science explained here is quite advanced for the elementary grades. With little else on the elements available for kids, however, these books will be useful in many libraries. --Carolyn Phelan"
