Debra BrinkmanYoder, COAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great biography for grabbing kids' interestMarch 15, 2011Debra BrinkmanYoder, COAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One of my favorite ways to teach science, especially for elementary ages, is to read biographies of scientists. There is something about reading these stories -- perseverance, dedication, commitment -- that makes the science the individuals are involved in so much more accessible and fascinating.
I think as a read-aloud, this works for a range of ages. My five year old didn't much care, but my 10, 12 and nearly 14 year olds absolutely loved the book. The nearly 7 year old was intrigued as well, particularly loving the gorgeous photos.
This autobiographical book was well-written, and compelling. Getting into the head of someone who actually walked on the moon was pretty incredible, even for me -- and I've never been particularly fascinated by all that space stuff.
I highly, highly recommend this book. It is a keeper.
