My Review:
Reviewed by Laura Fabiani

Alphabet books are great to teach young children not only the alphabet but also new words. This alphabet book, however, is not like most alphabet books. It's quite unique in its use of science words related to the world of chemistry, most of which are not used in everyday conversation. Which is why this is the ideal book to introduce children to the world of chemistry from a young age. 

Words such as oligiopeptide, photosynthesis, yocto and zymase are a sample of the words that can spark interest in young and older children alike. Of course, the definition of each word is simplistic since the idea is to jump-start the learning process. But parents can easily expand on these words that can lead into discussions of the world around us.

The illustrations by Endi Astiko are bright and colorful, using children of diverse cultures. Parents can also expand on the illustrations which elaborate on the meaning of the words. 

I'm glad to see STEM books (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) for young children being published. Books such as this one can make science fun and attractive. This one is a good resource for homeschooling too. I also suggest checking out the other science alphabet books published by Christi Sperber.

Meet the Author:

When Christi Sperber was pregnant with her first daughter, Emma, she wanted to add STEM books to Emma’s bookshelf. But the Mom who has a Master’s in Chemistry noticed that there weren’t many chemistry-related books available for babies and toddlers. The few that did exist, she noticed, weren’t factually correct. That’s when Sperber had an idea: launch her own publishing company - Nanoscale Scientists Publishing LLC – to introduce young kids to the wonderful world of science at an early age.
