The Story of Louis Pasteur

By Alida Sims Malkus
Level 6

In a small, quiet French village, young Louis Pasteur holds a curiosity for everything. His mind is brimming with questions: What makes crystals? Is poison alive? What are acids? Finding answers to his questions becomes a matter of life and death, however, as the wolf attacks increase in his village and the “poisonous” bites take the lives of the villagers! This is just the beginning of Louis’s exciting, life-long journey of incredible scientific breakthroughs.

Inspiring biographies are among the best kind of books to put into children’s hands, and Louis Pasteur’s story is too important to pass up. We are grateful for the chance to bring this beautiful book back into print.
