Determined Dreamer: The Story of Marie Curie

Before Marie Curie was the first woman in France to earn the highest degree in physics, before she discovered two new radioactive elements, and became the first woman to win a Nobel Prize (and then the first person to win two!) — she was a little girl named Marie Sklodowska who dreamed of being a scientist... and was determined to make that dream come true.

This comprehensive, accessible, and compelling picture book biography of Curie by acclaimed author-illustrator pair Deborah Hopkinson and Jen Hill captures the incredible perseverance that the pioneering scientist showed on her path to becoming the first woman to win a Nobel Prize. From early days fighting against discrimination and struggling with financial hardship, to her triumphant successes, this book highlights the power of a smart, determined woman with a dream.

Description

"A concluding segment on the X-ray units that the figure helped organize during WWI further amplifies the book’s focus on Curie’s contributions. Hill’s gouache, watercolor, and digital illustrations echo educational text with a muted palette for scenes that zero in on Curie’s studious qualities — speaking to anyone starting out 'as a child who wanted to learn.'" — Publishers Weekly
