Isaac Newton and Physics for Kids: His Life and Ideas with 21 Activities (Kerrie Logan Hollihan) - The book introduces readers to the scientific genius, as well as the social isolation, of this giant figure, blending a readable narrative with an attractive format that incorporates maps, diagrams, historical photographs, and physics activities.

Sir Isaac Newton (25 Dec 1642 – 20 Mar 1727) - Born the year Galileo died, Sir Isaac Newton is considered one of the greatest scientists who ever lived. He had a profound impact on astronomy, physics, and mathematics. Born prematurely on Christmas day and after his father’s death, his mother eventually remarried and abandoned him to grandparents. This would impact him for the rest of his life, causing him great insecurity. Fortunately, somewhere down the road, an uncle recognized his scholarly talents so Newton eventually made it to Trinity College in Cambridge. Among his many achievements was the invention of the telescope; the invention of calculus; the revelation of the three laws of motion; and the development of the law of universal gravitation. His contribution to science was almost insurmountable.
