Born in Warsaw, Poland, on November 7, 1867, Marie Curie was forbidden to attend the male-only University of Warsaw, so she enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris to study physics and mathematics. There she met a professor named Pierre Curie, and the two soon married, forming one of the most famous scientific partnerships in history. Together they discovered two elements and won a Nobel Prize in 1903. (Later Marie won another Nobel award for chemistry in 1911.) She died in Savoy, France, on July 4, 1934, a victim of many years of exposure to toxic radiation.

Getting Kids Hooked on History with the Who Was…? Series

Not too long ago, I had the luck to stumble onto the Who Was...? series in the Children's Section. These brief biographies highlight the lives of important figures from around the world, some well-known, but many that aren't nearly well-known enough. What makes these books so great? For one thing, each is written in a casual style that adults and kids alike can enjoy. Another thing I love… (more)

Great overview of Marie Curie's life. And bonus! It's full of line drawings, which makes it the best source for Marie Curie-related coloring sheets I've ever seen.

Excellent, short, simple bio of her life.

Great overview of Marie Curie's life. And bonus! It's full of line drawings, which makes it the best source for Marie Curie-related coloring sheets I've ever seen. Grab this book, head to the nearest photocopier, and bang--you've got coloring sheets of Marie Curie heading for the Sorbonne, sifting through tons of pitchblende, and accepting the Nobel Prize from the King of Sweden. There's even a periodic table, electrometer, and spectroscope to color!

An interesting synopsis of Marie, her life from young girl through her life as well as her accomplishments. She over-comes many trials, so this is inspirational for all readers. Her life does include an affair, so this is not ideal for a children's book, but it is a small portion of the story.
