Scientists A to Z

Once this book is closed

A challenge here is posed

To push beyond the boundaries

Observe and test surroundings

To care for bigger pictures

The letters and the figures

And if you always chase what’s true

The next great scientist may be you!

A is for Archimedes, B is for Bose, C is for Curie, and off we go… on an alphabetical journey from the past to the present, coming face-to-face with the wonders of scientific discovery and invention. In John Reilly’s lively verse, set to the rhythm of familiar rhymes, we meet 26 scientists who have changed our world. With jaunty illustrations by Anna-Maria Jung and intriguing biographical tidbits, the book sweeps across topics as diverse as genes, space travel, electricity and more.
