Publisher's Summary

You are made of stardust. It is incredible, but true! Everything you can see, touch, and smell is made of stardust, too - mind-bogglingly tiny things called "atoms" that stick together in millions of different ways like a big Lego set.

Science is all about understanding what these atoms do when they stick together. How can they move? What can they make? How did bits of stardust end up making a person? This audiobook will take you on a journey from the first "atoms", right through to present day, in order to see where your very own stardust-body came from and how it came to make the living, breathing you who can listen to this book on the planet we call Earth.

Whether you are a pre-teen eager to learn how the building blocks of science fit into the real world, a high-school student looking for a way to make more sense of your science curriculum, or a parent wanting to brush up on your science basics without sitting down with a revision guide, this book is for you. It describes and links together the fundamental concepts such as atoms, planets, and the human body in clear and simple language. Topics covered include: solids, liquids, and gases; different forms of chemical reactions; nature's fundamental processes and how this all ties into our planet, Earth. It is the story of the atoms you are made of, written in a plain and engaging narrative style that will fascinate as well as educate the listener on these important scientific topics. Get ready to be amazed.

Author Jennifer Marchant is an experienced chemistry teacher who runs a science department in a good, normal English secondary school. She is passionate about making scientific understanding more accessible to as many people as possible and believes we all need to be more curious and keep learning about the amazing world we live on. This is her first book, written while she was on maternity leave in a seemingly endless lockdown. She hopes you enjoy listening to it as much as she enjoyed writing it!

Science that’s fun to listen to

My 13 year old found this entertaining and easy to listen to. Great narrator! Some good analogies used when discussing chemical reactions.
