     This fun resource goes beyond what you know about famous scientists and reveals some quirky, interesting facts about them. Find out little known facts about Zhang Heng, Ibn Sina, Galileo, Isaac Newton, William and Caroline Herschel, Charles Darwin, Louis Pasteur, Ivan Pavlov, George Washington Carver, Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, Edwin Hubble, Barbara McClintock, Grace Murray Hopper, Rachel Carson, Chien-Shiung Wu, James D. Watson and Francis Crick, and Jane Goodall. You will learn that Galileo had a giant ego and if you disagreed with him you were an "idiot"; Isaac Newton's father was illiterate and died before he was born (and his mother frowned on education); Albert Einstein adored music and Edwin Hubble was a terrible driver. Barbara McClintock studied genetics in conjunction with corn, but didn't particularly like corn. She preferred Godiva chocolate! At the end of each chapter are 2-3 interesting trivia related to that person. Please note that while interesting, some personal details about these scientists’ lives may be offensive to conservative families - a parent may wish to preview the content first. 96 pgs, pb. ~ Donna

    A great life, quietly lived. George Washington Carver was born a slave, pursued education, sought to better the lives of black people across the south, loved his Creator and His Creation, and believed in his own eternal existence. All these life events and characteristics are lovingly portrayed in poetry by the author, Dr. Marilyn Nelson (poet laureate of the state of Connecticut). This book lives up to the hope of Albert Einstein: “I should appreciate it very much if the memory of the great scientist George W. Carver would be honored . . .” 6.25”x 9.5”, 103 pgs, hc (with dust cover). ~ Janice

    This concise biography presents the life and legacy of George Washington Carver, and in the process, clarifies that Biblical faith is not an impediment to scientific exploration. Drawn from a collection of original letters and speeches by Carver himself, this well-documented book tells the fascinating and true story of one of America's greatest scientists from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries'. Beginning with Carver's birth in poverty and slavery, and extending through his fruitful career as an internationally acclaimed inventor and botanist, this text clearly reveals how he became not only a great man of science, but also a great man of faith. The book has larger print and several black and white photos. While the photos in this book are not impressive, the message conveyed still makes this volume a good choice for any teenager or adult. 104 pgs, pb. ~ Mike
