Marie Curie Hardback
Illustrated by Demi
Maria Salomea Sklodowaska was born on November 7,1867.
Her family called her Manya, but the world would remember her by another name: Marie Curie, one of the greatest scientists who ever lived.
In a time when few women attended college, Marie earned degrees in physics and mathematics and went on to discover two elements: radium and polonium.
She also invented a new word along the way: radioactive.
This book celebrates her momentous achievements while also educating its readers about her scientific accomplishments and their implications.
