This book is awesome! It is a unique look at the genius mathematician Katherine Johnson. The book is presented as a graphic novel depicting Johnson as a young child and each page is all about numbers and how she saw the world through the lens of mathematics. Some pages even have challenges for the reader to solve math problems discussed on the page (solutions are included in the back of the book). There are fun activities at the end of the book also.
Katherine Johnson is one of my heroes (first black woman to work at NASA) and I’ve reviewed books about her before. If you or your children aren’t familiar with her, I highly recommend this book. Everyone should know about Katherine Johnson.
This book is available 7 March 2023.
Thank you @netgalley and @HumanoidsInc for an eARC of this book, which I have read and reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
