Marie Curie Reviews
Une introspection saisissante dans la vie d'une des plus grandes pionnières de la science moderne. La narration, poétique et inspirante, accompagne à merveille les illustrations aux teintes bleutées et qui évoque sans contredit l'apparence d'une poupée. Une belle lecture pour faire voir d'autres modèles aux enfants et les faire voir en grand!
3.5 stars. This is a nice series about famous lives. Nice illustrations and a line or two of text on each page.
Although this is a good introduction to Marie Chris, it felt as though her story was told in the bare minimum. I think if children are old enough to hear about Marie Curie they are probably old enough to hear a bit more about her life.
This series is so beautiful.

Sono quattro donne tutte da ammirare per la loro tenacia, per la loro determinazione. Sono da ammirare per il semplice fatto che con costanza sono ...more
Best one in the series I've read so far. Curie's determination, intelligence, and willingness to break the mold make her a subject for the author and illustrator to run with. The inside covers feature the two atomic elements she and her husband discovered, radium and polonium. Like all the other books in the series, the after notes provide extra context, information, and photographs.
