Sir Isaac Newtown, Scientists Who Changed the World


Sir Isaac Newtown, Scientists Who Changed the World by Anita Croy (EK Books) Hardback, 88 pages RRP $24.99 ISBN 9781925820713

Reviewed by Karen Hendriks

Sir Isaac Newtown is part of a series designed to help children learn about scientists who changed the world. Isaac Newtown’s discoveries changed our understanding of the world through science.

This book is divided into chapters that build a picture not only of Sir Isaac Newtown’s discoveries and achievements over his lifetime, but it gives background information that shows the young reader who and what shaped his personality and scientific mind.

There are six chapters which include photos, quotes, facts and varied page layouts with colourful illustrations where a child can open the book and read what interests them. The book does not have to be read in order. The text is child-reader friendly and supports STEM and history in our schools. There is a glossary and information about books and websites for further information for the curious.

Sir Isaac Newtown’s achievements were many and his contributions to this world are hard to include in one book, yet Anita Croy has successfully captured the essence of Sir Isaac Newtown and all that he contributed with his incredible mind. A child can be inspired to pursue a scientific field they are interested in and know that it is not enough to have the ability: it also requires lots of hard work, persistence and patience.

Sir Isaac Newtown is a book that will fascinate any child 10-13 years with an interest in Science. This is a great resource for schools and teachers.
