Spectacular Women in Space (Women's Hall of Fame Series) Reviews
I'm not sure where to start. My daughter is 10 1/2, almost in 6th grade, entering the age when girls reject math and science...though she's loved space since kindergarten. Her younger brother loves it even more, and challenges her! But how could we, her parents, challenge her, encourage her to keep loving it, inspire her to follow her interests?
My daughter is infatuated with space and the exploration of it. She is also very interested with the stories of women and their struggles and successes. This was a perfect book for her. She loved reading them and telling me all of their stories. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves biographies. space exploration, or women studies. We don't hear enough stories of these brave women who shaped our collective world.
