Louis Pasteur was not a star student in elementary school, but he studied hard in high school and college. As a scientist, he went on to have the revolutionary idea that germs caused diseases, and later proved it true. This engaging volume covers the personal and professional life of the now-revered French scientist, who made many contributions to the study of microbes and the spread of disease, including creating a rabies vaccine and inventing the process of pasteurization (which prevents microbes from quickly spoiling food). Fact boxes and captioned images appear on every spread, providing additional information and visual appeal. A time line, glossary, list of related books and places to visit for further learning, link to publisher-approved Web sites, and index make up the back matter.
