Little Guides to Great Lives: Marie Curie

by Isabel Thomas Author and Anke Weckmann Illustrator

Learn about pioneering chemist Marie Curie's scientific achievements, such as the realization that "radioactivity was a property of atoms" and the achievement of being the first person to accomplish "the isolation of pure radium." She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize! Complete with an easy-to-follow timeline, this book walks kids from Curie's birth in Warsaw, Poland, all the way to today's current applications of her scientific discoveries. Beautifully designed and illustrated in pink and gold, this book is suitable for ages 7-11-ish... it's wordy for a picture book, but not quite a chapter book.
