The Elements: A Q&A with Theodore Gray

Ever see a book and are just floored by the sheer awesomeness of it? That’s what happened the first time everyone in Scholastic Book Clubs saw The Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe by Theodore Gray. It’s one of the most captivating books about the elements in the periodic table I have ever seen and really brings to life every element on the periodic table. We’re thrilled to be offering this book on TeenRC and the “Read Every Day. Lead a Better Life.” offers in September (as well as October’s TAB) because this book appeals to all types of readers. If you love science, you’ll love this book. If you like art, you’ll love the unique and fascinating photographs and art of each element in this book. If you love nonfiction, you’ll love the information and text that accompanies the great art for each element. Book Box Daily was lucky enough to have the creator of The Elements, Theodore Gray, answer a few questions that we had about the book, about elements in general, and more. Check it out, and if you have a budding scientist or nonfiction lover in your class or home, share it with them!

    I’m so tickled to see this book featured. I too was ‘floored by its sheer awesomeness’ when I saw it and I knew we had to have it. My daughter is very interested in the elements and though it may seem unusual this is a favorite bed time reader for us. I love reading it and taking in the gorgeous photos just by myself, too. Wonderful book!

    Loved the interview w/ Mr. Gray! I will purchase the book for my youngest son. He was fascinated w/ the table which contained elements collected. Mr. Gray cracked me up talking about his own kids. Please tell him that mine thought he was very interesting!

    Good job asking interesting questions Trevor!

    Sincerely, Linda Pandullo
