Book Sharing Monday :: Giants of Science

Good morning! I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas!

Today I want to share with you a series called Giants of Science written by Kathleen Krull. I talked a little bit about the one that we already read on Isaac Newton here. We really enjoyed that particular title and will be reading two more over the coming weeks, Leonardo da Vinci and Sigmund Freud. There is one more title available on Marie Curie, you can see the full list here.

These biographies are great for children 10 and up, they are full of interesting, sometimes funny facts that make these "giants of science" more like everyday people. We laughed often while reading Isaac Newton and learned a lot at the same time.

If you would like to participate in Book Sharing Monday, please include a link to your sharing post below! Happy Reading!
