This range of books is brilliant for children because it is written in such a fun way, that they learn without realising it, and the homework was completed without a murmur!
'........another thing about dead famous scientists is that most of them didn't call themselves that - the word 'scientist' was only invented in 1833. What we think of as science - laboratories full of large-brained people, mathematics that makes your brain explode, gigantic machines that go 'Hmmm' only really got going in the 19th Century..... Before that, science was only done by a few people with enquiring minds and time on their hands.. Most of the dead famous scientists in this book were like that..........'
