Reviews

"As a good--even great--teacher, Hakim knows exactly where students might stumble and is always there, making sure they don't."--Diana Lutz, Natural History

"Hakim has interwoven creation myths, history, physics, and mathematics to present a seamless, multifaceted view of the foundation of modern science. . . . At its essence, the book displays the most appealing aspect of science and mathematics: that advances result from a practical need solved by curious minds."--School Library Journal, starred review

"[W]hen master storyteller Joy Hakim wields her pen, take heart: you're in for a breathtaking adventure."--American Educator

"If Leonardo da Vinci had studied school science, he would have been fascinated with The Story of Science."--Juliana Texley, lead reviewer for National Science Teacher Association Recommends
