To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My son read this book in one sitting. I have also bought the one on Viola Desmond, Harriet Tubman, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and other notable world-changers. Excellent reading for any age. Never too young or too old to learn. Knowledge is dynamic!
If you see the video attached to my review, you'll get a sense for the text + pictures in this book. It's a really nice book for kids. I read it to my year old and we even did the quiz at the end. He loved the book. However, I don't see him reading it on his own. He's a good reader in general but some of the language is a bit complicated for his age.
My girls just love, love, love, love this book! After my 7yr old read for the first time she decided that she wanted to grow up to be an engineer! It brought joy to my ears, to hear her say that! I love the fact that my girls are able to see someone that looks like them, that was very successful! Someone that did a great deal and someone who inspired a lot of people! I highly recommend this book for all little girls and boys!
Although they are sometimes discouraged, this book reinforces the message that more girls should not be afraid to explore math and sciences. Once they accept the fact that everything they do involves these things, they will be more comfortable with them. I am hoping to use it to encourage young girls in my sphere to embrace this and make the most of their opportunities.
