I make a special effort to look for books that might interest my nephew.  Many young boys are fascinated by dinosaurs and fossils.  Many homeschoolers and quite a few elementary school teachers feel unprepared to teach science.  I believe that this is in large part because they have no idea where to obtain the materials necessary to teach labs.  I have dealt with two very large companies, who although their primary purpose is to supply schools, will sell to individuals.  However, neither one will sell either chemicals or live bacteria and viruses.  Theses two are:  Ward Science Supplies and Carolina Biological.  Don't be fooled by the name.  Both sell materials to teach:  biology, geology, meteorology, astronomy, chemistry, and physics from kindergarten through graduate school.  A third company, Home Science Tools, sells primarily to homeschoolers.  They will provide chemicals in the very small quantities that a homeschooler would wish.
