Short Description

One of the greatest medical discoveries of the modern age occurred when Doctor Alexander Fleming recognized that a certain type of mold prevented the growth of harmful bacteria. Fleming soon derived a substance from the mold called penicillin; it would be the first of many anti-bacterial drugs, and would save millions of lives during the Second World War. This book tells the story of Fleming’s discovery, as well as of his many other accomplishments during a lifetime of medical research. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources. Key Icons appear throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons in this series are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are set in boldfaced type in that chapter, so that readers are able to reference back to the definitions--building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Educational Videos are offered in chapters through the use of a QR code, that, when scanned, takes the student to an online video showing a moment in history, a speech, or an instructional video. This gives the readers additional content to supplement the text. Text-Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the reader’s comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there.

And a Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter containing terminology used throughout the series.
