    This was a very well-delivered story, with a lot of good illustrations and photos to make the story connect with young readers. My daughter didn't even want to read it when I had her sit down with me to read, but she became absorbed in it, and really got into the details of all the photos and illustrations. It makes the reader aware of racial injustices, while also inspiring one to hold their self to high standards, to work hard, to overcome obstacles, and more than anything: to contribute to so This was a very well-delivered story, with a lot of good illustrations and photos to make the story connect with young readers.

    Very well written, with great art, to introduce younger children to the story of Katherine Johnson, and to the difficulties that women of color fought against to do what they loved.
