The History and Use of Our Earth's Chemical Elements: A Reference Guide (by Robert E. Krebs)  reviewed by Jeffrey D. Bracken
This book is an excellent resource for chemical educators at the high school and college levels. The format of the text is consistent and the writing style is clear and concise, making it ideally suited for student use also.

Periodic Tables of Elemental Abundance  Steven I. Dutch
Patterns of element abundance in the sun, chondrite meteorites, and the continental crust of the earth and the moon are portrayed on a periodic table. The abundance of each element is represented by a circle whose radius is proportional to the logarithm of the element's abundance.

Before There Was Chemistry: The Origin of the Elements as an Introduction to Chemistry  Neil Glickstein
The use of cosmology as an interdisciplinary introduction to a chemistry course is discussed. Students read a variety of nontext sources in order to piece together the events of the early universe that led to the creation of the elements. An introduction to gravity, mass, time, distance, temperature, and density are all possible with thematic cohesion.

Global Metabolism of Elements: Principles and Applications in Bioinorganic Chemistry - XI  Ei-Ichiro Ochiai
The biosphere, as its members metabolize the elements, can thus contribute to the overall global geocycling of elements. A diagram is used to indicate several different manners of the contribution and their extents of contribution to the geoprocesses. This overall process incorporating the effects of the biosphere is termed here as "global metabolism" and is illustrated for iron, mercury and arsenic.
