Marie Curie Reviews
This series is so beautiful.
Beautiful art, but decidedly underwhelmed by the text. I get that this a very brief introduction to Curie’s life and work, but there is basically no substance here. Kids deserve better.
This biography of the life of scientist Marie Curie comes from one of the Little People, Big Dreams series and comes recommended from the Mighty Girls website.

Brief, but good.
This is the first title in the Little People, Big Dreams series I've read, and I hope to goodness that it isn't the last. This was really beautiful, both in art and the emotion conveyed through both illustration and words, and it was interesting to learn more/new things about Marie Curie.
If only I had discovered this series many years ago! If this book is indicative of the rest of the series, this series is geared towards introducing younger children to great women who made history. The simple text and simple yet beautiful illustrations will keep young readers engaged in learning and interested in finding out more. We will be seeking out others from this series!
This book explores the childhood of Marie Curie, who overcame adversity to become one of the most respected scientists in the world.
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.
