Based on the New York Times bestselling book and the Academy Award-nominated movie, author Margot Lee Shetterly and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Award winner Laura Freeman bring the incredibly inspiring true story of four black women who helped NASA launch men into space to picture book readers! Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden were good at math...really good. They participated in some of NASA's greatest successes, like providing the calculations for America's first journeys into space. And they did so during a time when being black and a woman limited what they could do. But they worked hard. They persisted. And they used their genius minds to change the world. In this beautifully illustrated picture book edition, we explore the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA, known as "colored computers," and how they overcame gender and racial barriers to succeed in a highly challenging STEM-based career. "Finally, the extraordinary lives of four African American women who helped NASA put the first men in space is available for picture book readers," proclaims Brightly in their article "18 Must-Read Picture Books of 2018." "Will inspire girls and boys alike to love math, believe in themselves, and reach for the stars."… (mer)

This book is about four extraordinary black women who were instrumental in the US space race. The book tells the story of how Dorothy Vaughn, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden paved the way for both women and African Americans in the fields of mathematics, engineering, and programing. I love the story as well as the illustrations in this book. The illustrations feature many small details that I think add to the story and students will be able to look for. This book won the Coretta Scott King Book award and tells an important story that students need to hear.

This is a really informative book. It encourages readers to chase their dreams and to not be discouraged by the people around them. This book has amazing illustrations and is great for the middle grades. It’s about 4 women who made history discovering our space systems. In the back of the book, there is also a glossary and a mini biography telling about each woman’s story. I highly recommend it! ( )

This story is a deep and engaging book for intermediate readers. It tells the stories of four African American women during the time of segregation in America who overcame racial boundaries through their mathematical skills to help NASA and their space program. This book includes biographies at the end of the story, a timeline, and a glossary to help students better understand the characters and the setting.
This story could be used to discuss the history of the space race in a classroom or segregation. It could also be paired with the movie Hidden Figures to help students envision the characters better. Students who are fascinated with math, science, or space will find this story empowering as will minority students who must overcome limits to reach their goals. ( )

This story is about four African American women and their adventures. I would use this in my primary classroom because it is a book children would be proud to identify with.

Int. - middle. This book covers the true stories of four African American women and their contributions to the international space race. This is an excellent book to show Black excellence and what happens when we persevere. It would also be good to read during math and science lessons as it deals with hard work and a love of math and engineering.
