We're suckers for a good space story - especially a one that features a real woman scientist and pioneer in space travel at NASA. This book is a treasure for a lot of reasons - not least of which is how it inspires young girls (and boys) to explore science, math, and adventure. Show your favorite little girl the power of science and how far she can go!  

 

 

 

ABOUT THE STORY: 
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 hand-wrote 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.
