Made Newton come alive

Reviewed by Parent/Teacher

We just finished reading this book aloud to all the children, ages 8-16, and thoroughly enjoyed it. We learned some things about science and now feel like we have made a relation with Isaac Newton. The book made him come alive to us, and we appreciated the author's Christian perspective and emphasis on Newton's faith.

The story's reading level is probably upper elementary, but the excerpts from Newton's diary and writings are more difficult.
