Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Double Nobel Prize winner Marie Curie is the subject of this "First Biographies" title from Capstone Press. Young readers can trace Curie's life from birth to death and all of her wonderful contributions to the world of science. In addition to learning about her important scientific discovery of radium, readers get a glimpse of her personal life as we see pictures of her with her sister, her husband, and her children. While she made the discovery of radium with her husband, her accomplishments stand out in this book. A graphic timeline puts her life in perspective, and black-and-white photographs accompany the narrative in this text. The back matter consists of a glossary, references, and an Internet site so young readers can learn more about this pioneer in science. In terms of curriculum studies, this book is ideal for biographies, women's studies, and science. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 8.
