    Another year winding down, and another read aloud of Alfred Nobel in our final unit This is a fascinating read for all of us, and I ve found that this one generates a great discussion My words from a year ago below are right on for me again with a different group of students I find myself very impressed with the depth of the stories found in our grade level curriculum We really delve into some deep, very involved topics We ve read about many people throughout the year where students learn about them being awarded with the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize It s just a phrase to them Then, alas, we finish things off with a story about the man behind the prize I have my students make predictions before reading about what they thought this man must ve done in his lifetime to accomplish such a feat Needless to say, they re very surprised of his famous invention and the focus of the story It s a tough connection for all of my ...

    I knew the basic story of Alfred Nobel before I read the book Nobel was the inventor of dynamite but wanted to leave a positive legacy to the world with his wealth After his death, his estate is used to award Nobel prizes to leaders in several fields This story does a wonderful job of distilling these basic facts and the realistic illustrations make it an engaging text Unfortunately, the writing is not as clear or strong as it could be I found parts of the story choppy or disconnected And while Wargin makes a good effort to make the story simple for young readers, I felt that she didn t include quite enough information for young readers to truly understand Nobel s motivations for creating his awards I will purchase this book for my elementary school collection because I believe it fills a niche and presents a biography of an important, notable individual Wh...

    Wargin begins this biography of Alfred Nobel with his days as a young man trying to find a safe form of dynamite His success makes him a wealthy man, but not a happy one, as he sees that his invention has not always been used for peaceful purposes, but also to harm others When he dies, he leaves money to establish the Nobel Prizes Emphasis here is given on the creation of the Nobel Prize for peace, with the winners from 1901 to 2008 being listed in the back of the book Now I d like to see biographies of all of those people, some of whom I ve never heard What I really enjoyed about the book were Zachary Pullen s illustrations, which are slightly caricature like and viewed from interesting perspectives one of them looking straight down on Nobel at his desk The two page spread of the winter scene, where Nobel s death is described, is absolutely beautiful The only fault I find with the book is the abrupt beginning, which mad...

    The illustrations for this book are very good, and the story is aimed at the early grammar school crowd, but covers the high points of Alfred Nobels life He got a glimpse at his legacy when he was mistakenly reported to have died, and he read the world s reaction that he was responsible for tools of war he wanted dynamite to be used for progress and peace, so he left his fortune to honor those who had m...

    Horn Book Fall 2009 Wargin focuses on Nobel s adult life, from his invention of dynamite to his horror at its use people began to use dynamite to solve problems by hurting others This made Alfred very sad to the creation of the Nobel Prize Though the text is superficial, it gives a sense of the man Pullen s accompanying oil paintings are nicely shaded but distractingly caricaturish.Kirkus Reviews January 1, 2009 A picture book biography of the inventor of dynamite and creator of the Nobel Prizes fills a niche but oversimplifies somewhat in so doing From his discovery that the volatility of nitroglycerin might be harnessed for use to the reading of the will in which he established the famous prizes, the brief account sketches in the basic details of Nobel s adult life his fondness for reading and writing, his tinkering with explosives, the factory blast that killed his brother Emil and four others and the premature obituary he read when his brother Ludvig s death was misreported as his own Throughout, Wargin depicts a melancholy but committed pacifist who hoped his inventions would prevent war Pullen s full bleed paintings are at their best in Nobel s workshop, their subject intent on the chemical task at hand While the brevity of the narrative is appropriate for the audience, for whom little else on the subject is available, it glosses over the fact that he manufactu...

    Another fascinating true story about the man who invented dynamite, thinking it would be a tool to bring peace Though he was saddened that the opposite was true, he later created the Nobel Prize to encourage the peacemakers.
