    I received an advance digital copy of this book from Edelweiss + to review. 4.5 stars. I have been thoroughly enjoying The Amazing Scientists series. They use a rhyming text, which is not overly common in non-fiction, but works very well here. The books provide inspiring information through easily flowing text which makes them great for reading aloud. There is plenty of additional biographical information in the back of the book, plus a note and picture from the featured scientist!

There is plenty of additional biographical information in the back of the book, plus a note and picture from the featured scientist! I had never heard of Raye Montague until reading this book and I really enjoyed getting to know her inspiring history. Her life is a great example of perseverance and finding new solutions when things don’t go as you want. She faced a lot of discrimination and mistreatment, but she found ways to keep her head up and take whatever opportunities she could. There are a lot of similarities to this story and the one told in Hidden Figures and Raye Montague was even honored as the the US Navy’s first ‘hidden figure.’ I hope there will be more books to come in this series! Check out my thoughts on the rest of the books in the series on my blog post: http://becausemymotherread.siterubix....

    I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. A nice, rhyming biography of gifted mathematician Raye Montague, her accomplishments in engineering, and the struggles she endured to get there. At time the rhyming seemed overly silly, but it worked overall by telling Raye's story in a playful way. The supplemental materials at the end of the book is great for additional information about Raye, and includes: "Facts and Tidbits from the Author's Chat with Raye", I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review.

    Give to fans of "Hidden Figures", as math-minded women of color facing down discrimination with class and smarts weren't solely at NASA, but the Navy too.

    This is an absolutely great biography but to tell the truth it is a bit boring.

    Great inspirational story, unfortunately the rhyming verse lessens the impact. For grades 2 & up.
