Along Came Galileo

Similar in concept to Bendick's other book reviewed at this site, Archimedes and the Door of Science, this is a terrific book to introduce children to a great scientist, some of his scientific forebears, and his significant scientific ideas and discoveries. Told through a series of anecdotes about his life, the book presents just the right amount of information for children in elementary grades to interest them in science. Illustrated with black-and-white drawings, the presentation and lively writing style also make this book visually appealing and fun to read.
