“Some kids find the prospect of studying chemistry quite daunting, but this book hits a great balance of factual information and a conversational tone. Dr. Clark and Dr. Zovinka have created a readable, relatable book that would make a great gift for a science buff and a welcome addition to any junior high classroom, including my own!” —Cathleen Lykens, junior high science teacher

“As a chemistry and physics teacher for the past 22 years, and as a father of two children ages 7 and 11, I can tell you I love this book for my home as well as my classroom! The one page summaries of the elements provide bright, vivid pictures to capture children's attention. I love that each element is then followed up with interesting facts/details, feeding their interest in a brief but thorough synopsis.” —Ernest Pagliaro, high school chemistry and physics teacher

A Kids’ Guide to the Periodic Table is exactly what a young scientist needs! Dr. Zovinka's book provides an accessible look at all the elements on the Periodic Table and expands on what scholars would normally get in a typical school setting. It builds curiosity, connection, and engagement with chemistry at an early age—a great addition for a classroom library or a young reader's bookshelf!” —Brittany Walters, science teacher
