The book was a little bit too short for me but inspired me to find out more information about Marie Curie on the internet. They are some interesting facts about Marie Curie, she won the Nobel two times for chemistry and physics and this was absolutely amazing!

I like it because it's a boo about a woman who was a great scientist and it shows that women are just as good as men at science! I enjoyed reading the story of her life. I recommend it to all boys and girls

It's a wonderful book with lovely illustrations. There were difficult times in Marie's life which made me sad but she was very resilient and determined. Also, she inspired me to like science.

I thought this book was very good because it taught me things about Marie Curie that I didn't know. It interested me because my new class at school is named after Marie Curie so I wanted to find out why. I would recommend this book to children who like science because the book is about a famous scientist.
