Lift-the-Flap Periodic Table

Publisher: Usborne

Review

There are 118 chemical elements that make up everything in the entire universe, all listed together in a grid called the Periodic Table. In this book, we are introduced to each one in turn in the brightest and most exciting of ways – through the medium of lift-the-flap. Each element gets its own little character and fascinating facts simply explode off the page.

It may be difficult for some people to imagine a non-fiction book about the periodic table being entertaining, funny, revelatory and perhaps even a book to delight them on the toilet. But this is that book.

A tremendous feat, full of facts to delight readers of all ages: from curious primary school aged pupils to those struggling with their chemistry GCSE (to adults who have somehow missed chemistry from their lives). Chemistry is deeply fascinating. Chemistry is fun. This book will inspire future scientists.
