Book Overview

Isaac Newton was always a loner, preferring to spend his time contemplating the mysteries of the universe. When the plague broke out in London in 1665 he was forced to return home from college. It was during this period of so much death, that Newton gave life to some of the most important theories in modern science, including gravity and the laws of motion.

   Great book for kids
The book also tells the story of Newton's discoveries and their time in the lab. It's great to have such a good product, recommend it to anyone.
   Great book for my son, needed to add some history to his early reading
We like to alternate our son's reading of books he would normally pick up with some that are about historical facts to mix things up and keep his reading interest. He really enjoys them and starts up additional conversations, he said.
   Good overview of Newton's life
In this case, the third grader was assigned a biography report. Newton's widow said her husband had a "decent grasp" of who he was and what he did. Overall, I felt like the book was a bit choppy and uneven, but it got the job done.
   It’s ok
I bought this book to use in my classroom and after reading it I decided it may be okay for the kids to look at it, but I wouldn't read it to them.
   Great for kids and adults
This a great book if you just want to get a quick and short overview of Sir Isaac Newton, it doesn't go into great detail about every single act of Newton, but I found the book interesting and for a kid's book this was a great deal. It's a very quick read, and I think for most they get most of the meaty stuff from this book." I 34ll admit that I'm not interested in knowing the exact formulations of any of his stories. There are several other autobiographies of Newton that go into great detail.
   Great non fiction books
I'm delighted Amazon has chosen Penguin as the exclusive UK publisher of these books. The book is very well written and has great readability levels, said Dr. Chester Floyd, director of the University of Michigan's Center for Book Research. We're huge fans of these books, Rowling said.
   Didn't talk about the 🍎
Burrell is going into a lot of boring details, like how he dealt with the Church of England, because he didn't really believe in Christ as God. I was hoping for a little bit of how he became curious with gravity with the famous apple tree story, my kids said.
