Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 2—Shetterly introduces young readers to the inspirational and groundbreaking stories of Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden, and their once-hidden contributions to science, aeronautics, and space exploration. Shetterly expertly puts these women's achievements in their historical context: segregation, blatant sexism and racism in the workplace, the civil rights movement, and the space race. Despite the challenges these women faced, they persisted, worked hard, and put a man on the moon. In this picture book take, the text, at times, reads a bit clinical and it's occasionally difficult to distinguish one woman's characteristics from another's while reading. This is remedied with the handy time line of short profiles in the back matter. Freeman's full-color illustrations are stunning and chock-full of details, incorporating diagrams, mathematical formulas, and space motifs throughout (including the women's clothing and jewelry), enhancing the whole book. VERDICT An essential purchase for elementary school and public libraries.—Megan Kilgallen, Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn

Review

In Shetterly and Conkling’s approachable text, the reader is introduced to four hidden figures and given a broad look at the United States’ history of segregation and fight for civil rights. Freeman’s illustrations are striking, featuring bold, fully saturated colors. Feels as fresh as the original. Delightful and informative.” -- Shelf Awareness

“An important story to tell about four heroines, one that will lead young readers to the longer, more-nuanced coverage available when they are ready.” -- Kirkus Reviews

I love that this is not only the story book with beautiful illustrations but it also has a term glossary and more historical content like the visual timeline.
