The Stardust That Made Us

A Visual Exploration of Chemistry, Atoms, Elements, and the Universe

Written by Colin Stuart, Illustrated by Ximo Abadía

With beautiful illustrations and approachable writing, The Stardust That Makes Us is the perfect book for the elementary student who is curious about the universe and the elements that compose it. Beyond providing up to date scientific facts about the elements, it also offers compelling historical information and fascinating stories about important people related to the field. This includes groups of people that are often overlooked or ignored in STEM fields, especially influential and important women scientists. This book is a great addition for any elementary library that finds they are lacking in current scientific books that will catch the eye of some students. While not for every student, there are certainly some who will greatly appreciate its information, storytelling, and visuals.
