“I counted everything. I counted the steps to the road, church...anything that could be counted, I did.”

I would use this book to give my students a representation of women in history and science.

This biography portrays the life of Katherine Johnson who was a mathematician. The author make a bigger emphasis on all that she accomplished than the hardships she faced such as racism and sexism. I loved how this book incorporates both her small and large accomplishments throughout her career.

A memoir by Astronaut Scott Kelly about his year in the International Space Station. He also writes about his childhood and his years of training to become an engineer and a Navy fighter pilot before being selected as an astronaut – along with his identical twin brother Mark. A great read.

This book was great. This is a biography that was published in 2014. This book is aimed more towards younger crowds due to the many illustrations and the explanations throughout the book, but no one is too young or two old to be intrigued/drawn in by this book.
The book is about a little boy who's name is Carl. He loves the sky and concepts of space, stars, and comparing how big the sun is to our small planets. He also shows interest in planets.

em_lemo My favorite line throughout this book has to be the beginning. In the beginning, one is greeted with the sun and the planets that are around and closest to it, and then continues to narrow the places to Brooklyn, NY; which is were Carl lives.
“Carl was curious about everything.“
This follows the introduction, but sets up the readers for a hint about what he may be curious about.
