“From the most rudimentary instruments to the most advanced medical technologies available today, this book discusses life-saving vaccines, scanning equipment, x-rays, radiotherapy, medicines, such as aspirin, penicillin and insulin, prosthetics, and discoveries about the genetic code. The contributions of Marie Curie, Frederick Banting and Alexander Fleming, among others, are recognized. Readers will be fascinated to learn that an app invented in 2010 enables doctors to use their tablets and smartphones to assess their patients’ heartbeats.” -CM Magazine, 03/14 “Each chapter also features short biographies of pioneers in each field that gives a human dimension to the science. The book concludes with a timeline of developments in the field as well as a glossary and index. The book is focused towards upper elementary readers. Pictures of scientists, with women well�represented, diagrams, and photos help to clarify and extend the discussion. Kids will be intrigued with the book as they learn about trepanning and the invention of Listerine.” -NSTA Recommends, 02/14
