Atoms Everywhere! Unpeeled by Russ and Yammy with Nury Vittachi (Science Everywhere!) is an interesting nonfiction book featuring everything a child would want to know about atoms, from their discovery to their future. The book walks the reader through the first hypothesis by a sage named Aruni that everything is made of small building blocks, the differing opinions of Democritus and Aristotle on the existence of atoms, Johann Chrysostom Magnenus’s estimation of the atom’s size based on scent, the making of the periodic table, the different models of the atom, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, nuclear energy, the discovery of quarks and neutrinos, and everything in between. The book also considers the future of atoms and nuclear physics.
I enjoyed reading Atoms Everywhere! by Nury Vittachi. The book has a very appealing design, with easy-to-read paragraphs, quick “fact snacks” (fun facts about the topic), and short, funny cartoons featuring two characters named Russ and Yammy. The illustrations and cartoons drawn by Alan Bay are fun and engaging and are often paired with a joke relating to the topic. I especially like the jokes because they help the reader better understand and remember what they learned. The illustrations and jokes are also a great way to break up the text for more reluctant readers. The book does an excellent job of describing atoms in a way children would understand without oversimplifying. I liked that the book included QR codes to bonus features like YouTube videos for those interested in learning more about the topic or who learn better by watching videos. No matter how familiar the reader is with atoms, they can still learn something from this book. I know I learned a lot, and I would recommend this book.
