Space is the final frontier and this collection features ten women who have made an important contribution to the exploration of space. This book shows the particular challenges faced by women in their quest to discover more about our universe.
The chapters work together to give us an engaging portrait of the role women have played in space history.
These women are inspirations to any girl or woman interested in a traditionally male-dominated career.
Proof that you don't need a Y-chromosome to make significant advances in space travel.
I recommend this book to libraries that want to increase their biography and research collection.
A challenging novel for those children who appreciate different forms of literature and the interplay of symbols and imagery.
For the girl with stars in her eyes, and not the Hollywood kind.
The author brings to life these women's dreams, struggles and achievements. Highly recommended for ages 9 and up.
