I never get tired of her story! Here's an introductory story for younger listeners...and also a little background as to how Mark Twain came to write his book about Joan--what he considered as his most important work.

Sorry I've been gone for a bit...I had some life to tend to...
But I still want to get in a few stories about France, Canada, Switzerland and a poet before we leave this month. So today I am sharing a story of Marie Curie.
Yes, I know she is Polish, but most of her work was in France. And this particular story has several WEH principles woven into it...how many can you find?
Plus, since these are podcasts mostly for Well-Educated Mother's Hearts, she is a wonderful example of the influence of a mother on her children.
She was dissatisfied with the schools in Paris, so she brought her two little girls home and homeschooled them. She even formed a co-op--she took on the job of teaching physics. That would have been something, wouldn't it??
