Additional Notes

From The Publisher*A brand new title joins this hugely successful mini-encyclopedia series that packs a whole lot of information into your pocket!

Discover all the major elements of the periodic table, arranged in chapters according to their group, including alkaline earth metals, lanthanides, and noble gases. Every important element from hydrogen via carbon, oxygen, and gold to oganesson (that's element number 118).

Each element is featured in its own catalog-style entry, with a photo of the element in its raw state or in use; a caption explaining important information ranging from where it's found to its main uses; and a fact list presenting the key data, including the date of discovery and all atomic information as found on the periodic table. Plus there are stunning full-page photos showing elements as you have never seen them before--perhaps inside machinery that you can't normally delve inside; or in stunning macro photography that reveals microscopic details invisible to the human eye.

The style of the Pocket Genius series is perfect for all children, from reluctant readers who can easily digest the key points to budding Marie Curies and Louis Pasteurs who want to know everything about the most essential particles on the planet.
