Based on the New York Times bestselling book and the Academy Award-nominated movie, author Margot Lee Shetterly and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Award winner Laura Freeman bring the incredibly inspiring true story of four black women who helped NASA launch men into space to picture book readers! Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden were good at math...really good. They participated in some of NASA's greatest successes, like providing the calculations for America's first journeys into space. And they did so during a time when being black and a woman limited what they could do. But they worked hard. They persisted. And they used their genius minds to change the world. In this beautifully illustrated picture book edition, we explore the story of four female African American mathematicians at NASA, known as "colored computers," and how they overcame gender and racial barriers to succeed in a highly challenging STEM-based career. "Finally, the extraordinary lives of four African American women who helped NASA put the first men in space is available for picture book readers," proclaims Brightly in their article "18 Must-Read Picture Books of 2018." "Will inspire girls and boys alike to love math, believe in themselves, and reach for the stars."… (més)

Hidden figures has exploded as a movie and should be celebrated and read within the classrooms as well. I offered to different versions of this book to suit all the kinds of readers in my classes. As well as, to allow my students to gain a visual of these wonderful women in history and all that they did. Hidden figures is based off of four African American women who faced racial discrimination while working at NASA. These women has extensive STEM backgrounds and careers but were belittled, mistrusted and degraded by their peers during their careers and efforts at NASA. Regardless, they worked as computers at NASA, solving problems for the engineers and rising above and beyond their jobs to help solved issues at NASA. This is a fantastic book to read in class, because it discusses and surrounds so many issues within one story. Racial discrimination, job discrimination, treatment of others, courage, hope, women in STEM, black women in STEM, NASA, advancement, making a difference, and so forth. ( )

Following the four women who made the moon landing possible, this book illustrates beautifully the fight that Dorothy Vaughan, Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden endured to become NASA computers. Fighting black and white equality AND men and women equality, they struggled much of their career to get the position, but quickly found out they were very good at math...like very good. Their contributions are legendary not only to STEM, but racial equality and gender equality as well. I would use this book as a read aloud to my students for the engagement in STEM and the empowerment of women. I could introduce racial inequality throughout this book and excite students with the idea of NASA. I really enjoyed this book especially because it also has a movie that is closely based off the book. ( )

Hidden Figure is a remarkable story about four women who worked with NASA to get a Man into space, Despite the limitations set on them by being black women. These women overcame race and gender bias to be successful at their careers and that is an inspiration. This book can show your students that no matter what they can achieve. This book is also important for students to see because it shows representation in Stem. Students can learn about the important calculations to get someone to space, and significant history about the space race. ( )

Katherine, Dorothy, Mary and Christine, all African American women, were good at math. Really good! It was their understanding of numbers, their intelligence, their hard work and their persistence that caused NASA to hire them to do the math that would essentially send the United States into the space race for the very first time.
