About the Author
Dr. Ann Newmark worked as a curator, writer, and researcher at the Science Museum in London. She helped to revamp the chemistry galleries as a research assistant in the 1970s, became senior curator of the Experimental Chemistry branch in the 1980s, and was promoted to head of documentation in the 1990s. Newmark wrote the DK Eyewitness book Chemistry in 1993, using photographs of many of the museum's unique items to help illustrate the subject for young readers.

There are so many bright beautiful pictures and the descriptions/writing is very clear and effective. Each page is packed with information and covers the subtopic very thoroughly. Unlike most of the books we own, we can't read this all in one sitting so we pick a few pages at a time. My daughter is constantly asking questions about all the amazing photo's. And I find myself learning things and really feeling engaged in reading (unlike all our princess books we have read eight million times).
I believe my daughter enjoys this book so much partially because it comes across as grown up material and isn't 'kiddified' but the pictures do allow her to see and understand the material in her own terms/style. I am egger to buy more books from this line to see if they all are able to create such a love of learning.
I gave this to her at our family beach trip. All the kids-3 of them- were sitting and learning along with her. Everyone got into the act and the book was quite a hit. (Some of the adult "chem" majors added bits and pieces, so the whole family got into it.) This is one of a number of DK books which I will be buying more of. My granddaughter was thrilled and took the book to bed with her to reread.
The setup of the book gives an interesting overview and tells of chemistry in ancient times which she found really interesting as she loves ancient Greece and history and kept saying-I didn't know that. The table of contents is really inviting and there isa glossary of terms at the back.
Overall this is a great book. It arrived very quickly and was packed very well.
