About this title


Recounts the life and accomplishments of the first woman astronomer in America.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6-- More than just a biography of the female astronomer, this is also the story of Mitchell's contribution to the quest for equality for women. McPherson's easily flowing narrative recounts Mitchell's childhood on Nantucket, a good spot to observe the stars and a place where women, especially whalers' wives, were of necessity independent and respected members of the community. She credits Mitchell's father, an astronomer himself, with teaching his daughter the science and mathematics she needed to pursue her scientific career. Mitchell's many accomplishments and firsts are related in a clear, unbiased manner. Ample black-and-white pen drawings add to the book's appeal. --Margaret M. Hagel, Norfolk Public Library System, VA
