Marie Curie (November 7, 1867 – July 4, 1934) lead the way in the field of radioactivity and was the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes, the most prestigious awards any scientist can receive. Born in what is now Poland, the road to her achievements encountered many detours but with persistent study and the support of her husband she discovered radium, the cornerstone of the Atomic Age. Together they made the decision not to profit by this discovery. Sadly it was her exposure to radium that led to her death of leukemia.

    This book will grab kids attention! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Heidi  
    We have enjoyed using several of these books in our school this year. It has opened the door to introducing new ideas. The book is written in a fun and engaging way with descriptions that make it interesting. I think that these historical people are definitely made more understandable to a younger set of kids then is usually possible. These books are a springboard into more specific books and concepts!
