Pocket Eyewitness: Periodic Table

$12.90 NZD

Discover essential facts and stats about every element in the periodic table with Pocket Eyewitness: Periodic Table.


A brand new science book for kids 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) – is presented here.


Each element is featured in its own catalogue-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 into; or in stunning macro photography that reveals microscopic details invisible to the human eye.
