Margaret Hamilton loved numbers as a young girl. She knew how many miles it was to the moon (and how many back). She loved studying algebra and geometry and calculus and using math to solve problems in the outside world. Soon math led her to MIT and then to helping NASA put a man on the moon! She handwrote code that would allow the spacecraft's computer to solve any problems it might encounter. Apollo 8. Apollo 9. Apollo 10. Apollo 11.Without her code, none of those missions could have been completed. Dean Robbins and Lucy Knisley deliver a lovely portrayal of a pioneer in her field who never stopped reaching for the stars.… (mer)

Margaret and the Moon is one of those wonderful books that presents as a picture book for young children but which has plenty to teach older readers. It's a succinct biography of the pioneering software engineer whose code enabled the success of the lunar landings. Along the way, it even manages to deliver terse summaries of different branches of mathematics. ("She liked moving around x's and y's in algebra. She liked measuring circles and triangles in geometry. She liked studying curves in calculus.") My only quibble is that in the climax of the story, so much credit is given to Hamilton that it suggests her software alone saved the day, without mention of Buzz Aldrin's steady hand on the controls. But nearly every book about Apollo 11 makes the reverse omission, and I'm happy to see Hamilton get her day. ( )

Margaret Hamilton had big questions, and loved working out the answers. It was her math - and her code - that enabled Apollo 11's moon landing (and safe return).

Lucy Knisley's illustrations, which pair cartoon figures with real photographs and documents, make the story friendly for young readers.

Margaret loved working hard in school, but she especially loved numbers. She loved math so much she knew how many miles to and from the moon, how many miles around earth, how fast the earth moved. She began working harder to solve math problems and she even tried solving some of the hardest. She then discovered computers and began making codes for the computer, before long she convinced NASAs leaders to let her try to get people to the moon, she was successful. Margaret was one of the first women to work and be successful at NASA. I loved this book because it shows that women are capable of just as much as men. It also shows that if you study hard and practice what you love, you can do anything you set your heart too. ( )

This biography follows the story of Margaret Hamilton's life. The story starts by laying the foundation of Margaret's path which is a love for math, science, and a heart for big wonderings. This is a great book for empowering women because Margaret wanted to work hard to break barriers. She eventually became a software engineer and started working with NASA. Margaret worked with code and wrote code that supported the Apollo 11's landing on the moon. I would use this book in a unit about the moon. ( )

Margaret grew up wandering why boys and girls weren't treated the same. She always studied hard in school and always found answers to her questions. After years of work and preparation, she become the Director of Software for NASA's Project Apollo. Margaret thought of everything that could go wrong with Apollo 11 and prepared accordingly. As the spacecraft neared the moon, it became overloaded with tasks. Fortunately with Margaret's preparation all was fixed, and that is how she saved the first lunar landing!
This book tells girls that they too can do anything they want to when they grow up. I believe this book would inspire students to be scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and other stem related occupations. Margaret is proof that with enough hard work, students can accomplish anything. I thought the illustrations in this book were very fun and eye catching. This book would definitely be a fun read aloud! ( )
