Review :Reaching for the Moon :A Highly Inspiring Book to Read

The inspiring autobiography of NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who helped launch Apollo 11.
As a young girl, Katherine Johnson showed an exceptional aptitude for math. In school she quickly skipped ahead several grades and was soon studying complex equations with the support of a professor who saw great promise in her. But ability and opportunity did not always go hand in hand.
Katherine Johnson’s story was made famous in the bestselling book and Oscar-nominated film Hidden Figures. Now in Reaching for the Moon she tells her own story for the first time, in a lively autobiography that will inspire young readers everywhere.
About the Author

Katherine Johnson is a former NASA mathematician whose work was critical to the success of many of their initiatives, including the Apollo program and the start of the Space Shuttle program. Throughout her long career she has received numerous awards, including the nation’s highest civilian award, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, from President Barack Obama.



Ms. Mac: Worth the read - you may need to have discussions depending on the age of the child.
I just finished Reaching for the Moon. It is a young adult book, but has rather deep subjects (racism, lynching, separate and not equal, etc) so I am not sure how young a reader you would let read this. I would think it would take a lot of discussion.

One paragraph really bothered me. It is inaccurate, but Mrs. Johnson is over 100 years old. At the time of Pearl Harbor, she was a young mother living in West Virginia. Maybe this means more (to me) because I lived in Pearl City when I was very young.


Jeanette:A Highly Inspiring Book to Read
Of all of the hundreds of books I've read, this is one of my favorites so far. Not only was it inspiring for a young woman to read, but I also learned a lot about history from this book. This book inspires excellence, hard work, courage and to press through difficulties. It has also taught me to be extra grateful for the privileges we have in this modern age, and to have an even greater respect for those before us who paved the way. I recommend this book to everyone.

Mark:

Awesome!!! Must read!!!! History that needs to be taught! Mrs. Johnson talked about the team and working together to accomplish a common goal. No matter what ethnicity you are. She just wanted to be included to share her talents that changed the world.
