Description

See below for English description.

Étudiante à Paris, sans le sou, Marie Curie survit aux longues nuits d'hiver. Elle se consacre à la science, sa passion. Elle est la première femme à remporter le prix Nobel et aussi la première à le remporter deux fois. Ses découvertes sur la radiation ont changé le monde et ont fait d'elle l'une des femmes les plus importantes du domaine scientifique.

Meet Marie Curie --- Nobel laureate and world famous scientist. Marie was the first woman to win the world's top science prize --- and the first person to win it twice. The story of her discoveries, including the metals polonium and radium, and her contribution to the study of radiation is told in level-appropriate language and detailed illustrations. This Level 3 reader contains longer, more complex stories and sentences, more challenging vocabulary, language play and minimal repetition.

Original title: Marie Curie

Contributor Notes

On a peine à croire qu'Elizabeth MacLeod n'a jamais pris un cours d'écriture durant ses quatre années d'études à l'Université de Toronto. Elle a préféré étudier les sciences et a reçu une mention en biologie et en botanique. Elle a été éditrice pour le magazine OWL (Hibou et Coulicou) de 1986 à 1989. Elle a écrit de nombreux livres pour enfants en anglais et on lui doit la collection intitulée Biographie sur l'histoire de Samuel de Champlain, des frères Wright, d'Alexander Graham Bell et bien d'autres.
