7th November Marie Curie (1867 - 1934)
Today is Marie Curie's birthday and I thought it fitting to see what picture books were available to share with my young audience. Because of books such as Ada Twist, Scientist and Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World there has been renewed interest in the library for reading biographies and reading about science and women scientists. There's certainly much written about Marie Curie, but not all of it is easily accessible to under 10 year old readers. Therefore I am really looking forward to next March when another title, Marie Curie in the Little People Big Dreams series by Isabel Sanchez Vegara arrives in the bookshops. The other titles in this series that we have have proved to be popular and the perfect amount of words for prep school readers.
