Science and Me: Inspired by the Discoveries of Nobel Prize Laureates in Physics, Chemistry and Medicine
by Ali Winter, Mickael El Fathi (Illustrations)
4 out of 5 stars
This book gives short biographies of 13 Nobel Prize winners in the fields of Physics, Chemistry, and Medicine. From Marie Curie to Einstein, each page lists their discoveries, their challenges and setbacks, and their determination to succeed.
I really like how this book encourages the reader to be strong in overcoming obstacles. You never know what you might achieve with hard work and compassion. Some of the stories are really inspiring, as the scientists face prejudice and criticism. They live through wars. They are ridiculed by their peers. But their inventions and discoveries have saved countless lives and promoted further scientific knowledge.
I liked the unique art style. Each page has a portrait illustration of the Nobel laureate, and shows something about their work and how it was used. The art uses mixed media in an interesting and attractive way.
