Chem4Kids - Chemistry can really be a daunting subject. The periodic table for example. Why is is called periodic? And why is it arranged in such a strange way? Some things on one side and some on the other. Well, Chem4kids explains these things in language kids (and adults) can understand. Broken down in to manageable chunks so you never feel overwhelmed. They talk to you, not down to you. When I found this site I was looking for something else but I started reading and got hooked. I read page after page without realizing that I was learning something new.

It's kind of like when you are reading a book and you get to the good part. It's bed time and you have to go to sleep. You are tired and you have to stop reading but you want to finish that next paragraph, then the next page, and before you know it you have finished the chapter and are well into the next.

This site seems to be so well written that (even though it is educational) it's a good place to go for recreational reading. As long as you are looking around for good reading about science, be sure to check out Biology4kids and Geography4Kids
