Heroes of Science: Who Changed the World

We rated this book:


Heroes of Science is a book illustrated by Dave Shephard and the consultant editor is Emily Sohn. The book goes back as early as the time of Eratosthenes (the very first to “estimate the size and tilt of the Earth”) and then goes forward to as recent as Vera Rubin, who died in 2016. I think this book was created to remember many different people who were heroes because of their scientific discoveries. I learned a lot of new information from reading this book, even about people I already knew. For example, I didn’t know that Marie Curie studied cancer, the disease my Grampy had before he died in 2014! Charles Darwin’s dad wanted him to study medicine, not nature. ALL the people believed God made everything, but Charles created a book about evolution. It was called On the Origin of Species. I also hadn’t realized before this that Isaac Newton discovered rainbows. Do you want to know more? Read the book to find out. Dad loves science, so I will recommend this book to him!
