My First Book About Chemistry

My First Book About Chemistry is a neat STEAM based book with black and white pages to color which give a short capsule overview of biochemistry, geochemistry, basic atomic theory, and nuclear chemistry. Due out 15th Jan 2020 from Dover, it's 48 pages and will be available in paperback format.

I have been talking about STE(A)M education and books since the very earliest days of this blog.  It's vitally important to expose kids to the concepts as soon as possible.  They're the ones who are going to be making our future. They're the innovators, creators, inventors, discoverers of tomorrow's world.  The more our kids are engaging with the world around them, the better.  Critical thinking skills are more vitally important now than ever before.  We're bombarded with messaging and media spin from the moment we're born and learning to differentiate the truth is a vital survival skill. That's where STE(A)M comes in.  Finding fun ways to keep their interest is key.

This would be a great choice for classroom or homeschool use as well as a welcome gift for a science interested youngster (circa 8-12 years). Learning about chemistry while coloring the pages is fun and a lot more effective for learning than just reading alone.

Four stars.
