Book Overview

Born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was forbidden to attend the male-only University of Warsaw, so she enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris to study physics and mathematics. There she met a professor named Pierre Curie, and the two soon married, forming one of the most famous scientific partnerships in history. Together they discovered two elements and won a Nobel Prize in 1903. (Later Marie won another Nobel award for chemistry in 1911.) She died in Savoy, France, on July 4, 1934, a victim of many years of exposure to toxic radiation.

   Great Book!
Very informative book. What is or was books?

   Not as good as other “Who was” books
This book is very poorly written, not even comparable to other books in the series. Don't waste your money.

   Great Book
I can't say enough about these who was books, Powell said. My granddaughter absolutely loves reading them and researching great historical figures. I have never seen her so interested in reading. Yes, these books do tell the truth about a subject and the time in which they lived. This can be objectionable and/or disheartening to some but these are facts, rather one agrees with them or not! The reality of life is that people can achieve greatness, he said. It's just that they can't seem to get over the hump." They can overcome their mistakes, too. We have read three of these who was books so far and I think all of these books inspire young people and open the door for additional discussion between the young reader and an adult.

   My kids LOVE this series of books
There are multiple books by this series. They also include personal details about the person such as their interests when they were young, making them seem more relevant.

   Great series
My third grade daughter asked for this present and we gave it to her. She devoured it in record time, and I recommend it to anyone who reads it. It's still getting random Marie Curie factoids! The second part was great, too.

   True stories for children
I've loved the series since I was a kid, giving them to my godchild and now to my children. Easy to read, these biographies are also available in French. This one of my daughter's favorite teachers was her favorite because she was learning about smart women who were independent and strong. Though the books do include such themes as birth, death, cancer, war, sexism, violence and even aphorisms, parents are advised to be aware that these are not the only ones.

   Be aware!
I was disappointed in this book, partly because it was so poorly written. I bought it for my children ages 3 and 8. In her book, Whitney tells the reader how she fell in love with a married man. It kind of paints the picture of her as a poor victim because the man apparently didn't love his wife anymore but wouldn't leave her, Morgenthau said. Even if you disagree with Dr. Goin's position, parents should be warned that this may go against what you want to teach your children.

   Great summary of her life
I really enjoyed the book and would recommend it to anyone. It tells all the most important things about her life, which is why she came in great condition, said Goodrich.

my little brother said Maro caro so I call this book Maro caro and it is expensive so that is the reason I tell you I call this book Maro caro.

   These are great books. All of the Who Was books are ...
I recommend that you read them both." All the Who Was books are excellent for young readers. My daughter almost always seems to find something interesting to talk about. I think this is a great read for grades 3 and 4.
