Marie Curie by Liz Gogerly


Marie Curie by Liz Gogerly

Marie Curie - the woman who discovered radium, the scientist who gave greater understanding to the nature of the atom and who ultimately died from the effects of the substances she discovered. Follow the story of Curie's life, from her childhood in Warsaw, Poland to becoming Director of the Paris Radium Institute, and find out about her discoveries, including how they are still affecting us today.


A superb series...These books would be excellent both for a library and for children and teachers to read as part of a science course. TES
