Newton's Rainbow by Kathryn Lasky

by barker_patricia (WorldCat user published about 2 weeks ago) Very Good Permalink

This is an excellent biography of Isaac Newton. Kids are going to learn about some of the things he did and invented. His experiences show that people can accomplish a lot if they believe in themselves and if they don't give up.
