About the Author:

Marne Ventura writes educational material for children in grades K to 6. A former elementary school teacher, she holds a Master's Degree in Education with an emphasis in reading and language development from the University of California. Marne has helped to create more than 50 software products and apps for learning math, science, reading and social studies. She also contributes stories and articles to children's magazines. She is a puzzle, brainteaser, and word game enthusiast. Marne lives with her husband in Arroyo Grande, California.

From Booklist:

This swift-moving overview of the affable astrophysicist’s career focuses on the origin and growth of his interest in space science, and also his unusual aptitude for communicating scientific ideas and discoveries to public audiences. That interest was kindled by a visit at age 9 to New York’s Hayden Planetarium (which he now supervises) and nurtured by the acquisition of a telescope at 11 for sky watching from the roof of his Bronx apartment building. His career grew to encompass advanced degrees, appointment to a presidential commission, and many television appearances. Ventura also uses notes and quotes to make the perhaps arguable but cogent point that Tyson is the only African American on TV who is consulted for “expertise” that is unrelated to his race. This entry in the STEM Trailblazer Bios series features sidebar quotations, photos of Tyson (as an adult) and other images, and appropriate quantities of back matter. Grades 2-4. --John Peters
