Editorial Reviews

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, April 23, 2012:
"The explanatory style, accessible language, and diagrams keep science concepts understandable."

The New York Times, June 20, 2012:

"Bonnie Christensen dials back several centuries in "I, Galileo," demonstrating once again how a well-conceived and executed picture book can deliver a serious story . . . in a beautiful, enriching way. . . . [A] fully realized, humanized portrait."

Kirkus Reviews, May 1, 2012:

"An accessible, inviting and attractive introduction to Galileo."
