The life of Leon Foucault is beautifully yet simply presented in this NSTA/CBC Outstanding Science Trade Book for 2011. The French physicist is best known for his elegant demonstration of the Earth's rotation using a long pendulum suspended from the roof of the Pantheon in Paris.

This book is ideal for making connections between science and history. The historically accurate illustrations are supportive of the story. The bibliography, glossary, and pronunciation guide help students stretch their skills.
