  1. We have The Elements and the Photo cards – we LOVE them! Amazon has a great price on them right now (together, they are enough for free super saver shipping too!).

  2. Yes, we’ve enjoyed them, too. The Elements book is a coffee-table book and conversation piece. My 7 & 9-year-olds like to lay out the cards on the floor in the positions of the periodic table. The “vault” book is the one I’ve questioned purchasing, because it is very similar to the Elements book, but it’s great for reinforcement. All 3 items can be enjoyed from elementary school through adulthood…
