A story of remarkable determination and ingenuity. "We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained." -- Marie Curie Manya's Dream introduces young readers to the fascinating story of Marie Curie's (born Manya Sklodowska) life and to her exceptional achievements in the realm of science -- including winning not one, but two Nobel Prizes. As told by a mother to her young daughter, Marie's remarkable story unfolds: from her difficult years living in Poland under oppressive rule to her amazing scientific accomplishments in France, even in the face of incredible professional and personal challenges as a woman and an immigrant. Young readers will empathize with Curie's shyness and fear; they will also celebrate her perseverance. Her determination is an inspiration to readers of any age. A chronology of events in Curie's life and a summary of her achievements follow the story, giving young readers insightful context. The introductory page Who Was Marie Curie? gives a clear understanding of the impact of Marie Curie's revolutionary work and ideas, which changed the world we live in.
