" Remembering history is important. I love reading the success stories of real people that have overcome the injustices that can occur in life and prospered in-spite of difficult beginnings. " said.

"A great brief, kid-friendly biography of mathematician Katherine Johnson, who was an instrumental part of NASA. If you've seen the excellent movie Hidden Figures you'll be familiar with the facts shared in this book.
I bought this for my niece who is turning 7, and is at a level 2-3. But as with other level 3 readers in Simon & Schuster's Ready to Read series, I think some of the words and content may be a bit advanced for her. The book delves into segregation, college, the space race between US and the Soviet Union, and mathematical calculations necessary for space travel. It's all handled thoughtfully and appropriately, but for a new reader, tackling both these concepts and words like cosmonaut and aeronautics may be overwhelming. At the risk of underestimating my niece, I think I'll save this one for when she's a more experienced reader.
I also just checked the S&S website which further describes their level 3 as books for "confident readers" who are "looking for a challenge." The parent guide suggest kids make a list of questions as the books are designed to introduce them to new concepts. I think that's certainly true of the two level 3 books in the series that I read.
