Product Description

Review

BooklistBasher continues his series of science primers that are so entertaining, kids may read them for fun, beyond the classroom walls. . . .the authors blend a surprising wealth of facts into the chatty, humorous text, which is filled with analogies kids can relate to. A hot spot in the earth's mantle, for example, is "like a huge, angry pimple on Earth's face. . . . " the highly approachable language, animated cast of characters, awe-inspiring facts, and conservation messages make this an appealing starting point for students seeking basic earth-science information.

Book Description

Bringing together science, personal ads and Manga – this is a totally unique guide to Earth!

Our family has found books in this series on Punctuation and Maths very useful and "Chemistry" is another great title in the series. It is a readable and accessible introduction to chemistry terms and concepts. Very enjoyable - our eleven year-old daughter finds it interesting (quite an achievement). I wish books like this had been around when I was starting secondary school. This book would probably suit those starting chemistry in their first years at secondary school - say ages 11 to 15. One slight issue I have with it is the small size: the Punctuation and Maths books are a nicely sized seven inches square. This one is only five inches square. Nevertheless it is a very well written introduction.

My 10-year-old is just getting into chemistry while my 15-year-old is struggling with more advanced concepts in high school. When this book came in the mail, my smaller son read through it and said, "Wow! What a great introduction!" Then my high schooler leafed through it and said, "I should have had this book a couple years ago! Now everything makes sense!" So, whether you're new to chemistry, or just need to brush up on concepts you willfully forgot after high school testing, this is a perfect book. The Basher Series is like the best sort of alchemy -- it'll turn your kids into interested students and closet geeks.

Kingfisher/2010

From the back cover:-

'Imagine the planet we all call home as a crowd of cool globe-building characters, each with its own personality.
This book is your essential guide to the down-to-earth guys who keep the world in motion.'

Measuring in at c 12.75 cm square this is a neat little book, created by Basher and written by Dan Gilpin.
Colourful paperback covers open to 128 high quality, shiny pages, split into chapters:-

Earth (pg 6-7)
Chapter 1 - The Insiders (pg 8-27)
Chapter 2 - Going Global (pg 28-37)
Chapter 3 - Landlubbers (pg 38-51)
Chapter 4 - Wet! Wet! Wet! (pg 52-67)
Chapter 5 - Weather Gang (pg 68-97)
Chapter 6 - Lively Crew (pg 98-123)

with an introduction, a 3-page glossary and an index......completed with a fold away poster attached to the back inner cover.

Each chapter has an opening double-page spread with the introduction on the left-hand page and the 'characters', i.e. the following topics, on the right.
Each topic follows the same format, a one or 2-page spread giving key information in three bullet points at the top and bottom, with general text in between, along with a coloured 'fact box' at the foot of the page.

Opening with 'Eratosthenes' and finishing with 'Conservation', this is a useful bite-size information book which is presented in a way which makes learning fun without really realising!
I have to admit that I picked up some information I didn't previously know, reading through this relatively easy-to-digest mini-reference!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My children love the bright colours and cartoon nature of this book. They enjoyed this one so much that when we went to the library they picked up a couple more from the series. It is difficult to get smaller children interested in anything 'educational', but the fun nature of this book is enough to get their interest and keep it for more than a 'quick flick'!

It is great for answering 'those questions' that kids ask about things that we don't overly think about; such as "why does it rain?" or "why does it get windy?". When we had thunder last week my 6-year-old daughter said "Oh I think I should read about this in the "Planet Earth Book", so we sat together and read all about the weather. It was such a change for her to pull out a book because she knew there was something in it that she wanted to talk about.
