Kid Scientists: True Tales of Childhood from Science Superstars

Out of stock for now, sorry!

Written by David Stabler  |  Illustrated by Anoosha Syed

Every great scientist started out as a kid. Before their experiments, inventions, and discoveries that changed the world, the world's most celebrated scientists had regular-kid problems just like you.

Stephen Hawking hated school, and preferred to spend his free time building model airplanes, inventing board games, and even building his own computer. Jane Goodall got in trouble for bringing worms and snails into her house. And Neil deGrasse Tyson had to start a dog-walking business to save up money to buy a telescope.

Kid Scientists tells the stories of Temple Grandin, Nikola Tesla, Ada Lovelace, Benjamin Franklin, Isaac Newton, Rosalind Franklin, Sally Ride, Rachel Carson, George Washington Carver, and Vera Rubin — through kid-friendly texts and full-colour cartoon illustrations on nearly every page.
