Amazing, thanks Amazon!!!
My 5year old is really into Science and I bought this to expand his knowledge, now he won’t put it down.
The first couple of pages explain about elements, atomic numbers and the design of the periodic table. The elements are split into groups and the common properties explained, then each page tells you about the element, with working examples of its use.
My son has learnt so much about the building blocks of the physical world and I honestly am astounding by some of the properties and uses of some of the elements.
The poster is glossy a3 and folded at the back in a pocket but is of great quality. It shows the periodic table but fills in the blank spaces with snippets of history or science facts.
Altogether it’s a brilliant book. A must buy for inquisitive minds.
