Archimedes and the Door to Science (Living History Library)
Archimedes and the Door to Science - Living History Library Author:Jeanne Bendick This is a book about the life and work of Archimedes, the Greek mathematician, a book designed particularly for students in home school situations but interesting for any young reader.
Outstanding! Presents Archimedes' inventions and discoveries in a fictionalized easy to read biographical format. Also has very clear illustrations. When my son was nine years old, he was fascinated by this book.
