Dmitri Mendeleyev developed the Periodic Table of Elements as a way to organize the chemical elements, yet it is often confusing to the untrained eye. The intent of this book is to provide fun initial training so that sense of confusion is short-lived.

Chemistry does not have to be scary. Students can begin their study of chemistry with interest, inquisitiveness, and a sense of fun so their minds will be like absorbent sponges.
The author envisions that kids will read this as summer reading prior to their first chemistry courses. I hope it puts them in a good frame of mind for learning and provides some basic knowledge so they enter the classroom having grasped some of the nuts and bolts of chemistry. It might even prompt some questions for the teacher (which can be written during breaks interspersed throughout the book.) What better way to start a course than with thoughtful inquiry?
Parents might consider picking up this book before or after their children read it. If the parents havenÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½t studied chemistry itÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s a non-stressful way to learn a little and if they took chemistry decades ago it will be a fun review. They might even talk chemistry with their kids.
This book is good for anybody who is ready to learn or review basic information about chemistry and the Periodic Table of the Elements. Because it is very lighthearted, even elementary-aged children might enjoy reading it or having it read in whole or part to them.
