The Building Block of the Universe
"What this title does well is cover the basics of what an atom is and provides clear explanations of how the atom builds into elements, molecules, common substances like sugar, salt, chalk, and soda, even chocolate chip cookies. This book is for the youngest readers and curious minds asking about how life works....This title would work well in an elementary unit about chemistry or physics." —School Library Connection, Recommended
