Eureka!: The most amazing scientific discoveries of all time
This is a book about scientists, and about how they find out about things. Some find microscopic creatures. One scientist wrote a journal about what the creatures looked like, sketching dozens of pictures of the minute creatures. Once he had finished, he gave the journal to the King of England. The book describes a doctor who kept animals that had a disease that was transmitted in their saliva. The doctor studied them and was able to make them well again. Another doctor experimented with medicines; after returning from a long journey, he discovered that a certain type of mold killed the bacteria in his experiments. There is another scientist that made a dog well. She was one of the first women to be a scientist. Then there are scientists that find out about the universe and the planets, and lots of other things.
I like this book. It is quite long; it tells us about what scientists did. I really enjoyed the illustrations because they consisted of descriptive photographs and neat pencil sketches. There were some creepy things in here, like the dog that looked like a dragon. There were lots of things to read about.
