I read this to my 3rd and 4th graders. While there were some interesting facts about Galileo, the majority of the book was a complete snooze-fest. It's only saving grace was that it was short and a quick read.

I read this with my 7 year olds and we all enjoyed it and learned things about Galileo and other early scientists at his time. Geared for middle elementary children.

This is the second time I have read this book with the kids as part of their school curriculum. Both times they really enjoyed, and even asked to read it if I forgot! Worth the read with your littles!

Great biography of Gailileo. My 10 year daughter is very excited about Galileo and how his ideas shaped modern science and astronomy today. The pictures were creative and humorous as well.
