Marie Curie (Little Guides to Great Lives)

Marie Curie was a brilliant scientist at a time when many people banned women from studying at all. She coined the term 'radioactivity', discovered polonium and radium, and helped develop treatments for cancer. She was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize — and the only person ever to win Nobel Prizes in two scientific disciplines — but her dedication to physics ultimately caused her death from radiation.

In this book from the small-format, collectible Little Guides to Great Lives series, young readers can learn all about Curie's inspiring life: her thirst for knowledge, her brilliant mind, and the example she gave to all of the women scientists who came after her. With a fresh design and full-color illustrations, it's an absorbing introduction to an incredible woman from history!
