Product Description:

In Galileo's time, people didn't study with the purpose of learning new things. Instead, they studied what people before them had believed, like Aristotle and Ptolemy, two of the ancient Greek thinkers who had lived years before. It was not popular to have new ideas, but that didn't stop Galileo. Practically from the time he began school, Galileo was learning new things and challenging the old ideas through experiments and tests. This book shares the story of the man who had the courage and determination to ask questions and prove that he was right to a world that was not ready for his methods. Students will learn much about the world of Galileo as well as his scientific ideas through this interesting, readable book. 95 pages.

I've used other books by Jeanne Bendick in our homeschool, and we love them. They are well written and very informative. This year, we are studying Medieval History and astronomy, and this will complement it nicely.

Seemed a suitable replacement for Ambleside recommendation of Galileo and the Magic Numbers. Also, this was the best price anywhere for ACG.

Seems to be used and recommended by many science programs. We will be using it with Elemental Science Earth Science and Astronomy.
