Marie Curie

Marie Curie
By Ma Isabel Sanchez Vegara
Illustrated by Frau Isa
Frances Lincoln, 2017. Biography.

This little picture book biography - the latest in the Little People, Big Dreams series - is by far the cutest book about Marie Curie that you're ever likely to read. The text and story are very simple, and yet I still feel like I learned a bit about Marie Curie and her contribution to science and history. The illustrations are simple, bright, and colorful - I could see this becoming a favorite picture book for a young reader interested in science. This is a very cursory introduction to Marie Curie (although there is a little more information provided in the back) but this series is a great way to start introducing little readers to inspirational role models.
