SLJ Review of Intro to Chemistry: Need to Know

Dive into the world of chemistry with the latest installment of the ‘Need to Know’ series from Bearport. Accessibility is at the forefront of these books, with text written at a second-grade reading level using a dyslexia- friendly font. Titles explore different chem- istry concepts, such as states of matter and chemical reactions. These complex scientif- ic concepts are explained using straightfor- ward language and thoughtful explanations to show how they are relevant in day-to-day life, making them understandable and in- teresting to striving readers. Although the books can be read separately, they are en- hanced when read as a set that builds upon different ideas. Full-page photographs and well-designed diagrams are used to illus- trate chemistry concepts. Comprehension questions for further inquiry are provided at the end, along with additional print and online resources through the FactSurfer site. VERDICT These engaging and readable texts bring chemistry to life; they are recom- mended for middle school collections need- ing Hi-Lo science titles.
