Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
An educator, a scientist, a wife, a mother, a Nobel Prize recipient—Marie Curie had an extraordinary life for a woman living in the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. Determined to progress beyond the constraints of a woman living in Russia-controlled Poland, Curie worked as a governess until enough money was saved for tuition at the University of Paris's Sorbonne. She began her career as a scientist after graduating in three years and becoming the first woman to receive a degree in Physics. Years of hard work with her husband and partner, Pierre, led Curie to the discovery of two radioactive elements, polonium and radium. These discoveries earned the Curies the Nobel Prize in Physics and eventually lead Marie to another Nobel Prize, making her the first ever to receive double honors. This book gives a clear and interesting picture of Curie's life. The text is clear, the authentic photographs plentiful and the chronology of events easy to follow. There is a timeline, a glossary of terms and listings of references and Internet sites at the end of the book. It is perfect for those embarking upon a research project. This is part of the "Trailblazers on the Modern World" series. 2001, World Almanac Library, $26.60. Ages 8 to 15. Reviewer:Andrea Sears Andrews
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-A clear, straightforward biography. There are lots of photographs, reproductions, and sidebars but the format is not overly crowded. Santella opens with Curie's early experiments and how her work led to two Nobel Prizes as well as her extraordinary contributions to the world of physics and chemistry. Her life is described chronologically, including her early years in Warsaw, her family life, commitment to her sister, and her decision to study science. Her college years in Paris, her marriage to Pierre Curie, the birth of her children, Pierre's death, and her scientific discoveries follow. The pages that deal with chemistry, physics, and her work with pitchblende and the discovery of radium are clear and easy to comprehend. Readers learn about the importance of X rays, the terrible influences of radium on the body, and Curie's continuing research. While not necessarily a title that will attract youngsters by its appearance or its approach, this book certainly answers many questions and offers students good information on an important scientist.-Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
