Why alphabet books?

Alphabet Picture books are great for babies, tots, and beyond; they cater to the broadest range of readers because of the wealth of information that can be included in them, and therefore are a helpful resource for content learning. One of the most efficient types of literacy instruction comes when topics are taught contextually. They are also a great format to appeal to different learning styles – reading out loud for audible learners and colorful illustrations for visual learners.

In Explore the World of Chemistry, there are three main parts to each page, and each part is aimed to help in different developmental stages of learning how to read. First, the alphabet letter and the accompanying word helps readers to recognize letters, expand their vocabulary, identify the difference between letters and words, and learn the relationship between letters, sounds, and words. The second part of each page is the colorful and fun picture which is great for visual learners. The picture provides visual clues to help figure out what the word means, especially for harder words – if they do not understand the word, then the pictures can help provide context to deduce the meaning; this also helps increase visual intelligence which is looking for meaning in visuals. The third part is a brief definition of the word which advances vocabulary, connects the word and its meaning for better comprehension, and readers get to expand their understanding of each word and gain new knowledge.

All learning styles are addressed in this book, which makes it ideal for any kid wanting to learn more about science.

Explore the World of Chemistry is a fun children's book that teaches kids about different science terms relating to chemistry via the alphabet. The illustrations are cute and colorful, and the words are unique enough that kids will be intrigued to learn more. While some of the words are common enough (vitamin, X-Ray, DNA), other words might be strange to young ears (like benzene and oligiopeptide).
My son, who is 5 and on the spectrum, is obsessed with the alphabet and learning to read, so we've looked at and read over this book numerous times already. It's definitely something that young readers will find fascinating and fun to look at again and again. And parents will like the fact that it's unique and educational (for both kids and their parents) compared to a lot of alphabet books.
I'm giving this one 5 stars.

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.
