" Note: I accessed a digital review copy of this book through Edelweiss. " said.

" Thanks to Edelweiss and Dial Books for access to a pre-publication copy. This is a great title to teach young people about the contribution of Marie Curie to modern science. My only quibble is the strange choice to mix the way the people were drawn. It was odd to see Marie in a kind of "chibi" style and many others in a more naturalistic style. " said.

"Ordinary People Change the World is a biographical picture book series from Brad Meltzer, best known as a bestselling author of adult thrillers. Positive and inspiring for preschoolers. Christopher Eliopoulos’ cute illustrations just add another layer of appeal! Introducing young readers to these ordinary people who fought against stereotypes and/or injustice, the books have tackled various well-known people and their causes. It's amazing to think what needed to be overcome just to get a good education and to pursue one's passions. Sure to inspire readers to go for their dreams." said.

"I received this book as an ARC from Dial Books in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

Marie Curie is said to be one of the most influential women in science but I really did not know much about her childhood and how she got her love and passion for science and her love for education and explosives. I knew she was of Polish decent but I never knew that the college near her home did not accept women. Also, every child living in this millennium should read this book to know what it was like without television, Internet and Smart phones and how they entertained each other was having their parents read to them! Such an inspirational book!

We will consider adding this title to our J Biography section at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

" I just love these books. The art is cute and the stories teach us about real life people and what has made them famous. A great way to get kids interested in topics ranging from science to history to art. " said.

"When I was five or six years old I asked my grandad why there were no women scientists or explorers. He was extremely surprised and told me not to believe the textbooks. Introducing children to women role models is extremely important and reading about Marie Curie is a fantastic opportunity to do this.
I really liked the way the text and the illustrations interact and enhance each other in this book, although I'd have to explain why Marie Curie appears so much smaller than other people. My only quibble is that nowhere (until the timeline) do we see her Polish surname Sklodowska which was a great part of her identity.

Thank you to Edelweiss and Dial Books (Penguin Publishing Group) for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.
