Marie Curie by Leonard Everett Fisher (Atheneum, 1994, 32pp.)
Black and white acrylic paintings illustrate this overview of the life of Marie Curie, Nobel Prize winner in both Physics and Chemistry. A nice introduction for children - and certainly one to show girls interested in science - but not really a book you want to reach for at Story Time. Recommended for Ages 8-10.
