Marie Curie - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
Tell them a story. Tell them a real story. This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the life and achievements of Marie Curie.
Marie's love of learning helped her to revolutionise the fight against cancer with her discovery of radium and polonium. This book tells how she was unable to study at university in her home country, but this early barrier did not stop her from pursuing her goals and she went on to win the Nobel Prize twice for her discoveries in physics and chemistry.
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
Also in this series - Amelia Earhart, Emmeline Pankhurst, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Frau Isa.
