Annie Jump Cannon Astronomer just came out from School Library Journal!
From the review:"This inspiring picture-book biography of a trailblazer in the field presents insight into the challenges of women interested in science during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. ... The realistic illustrations capture the time period and complement the text. They’re scientifically accurate, including a physics equation on the professor’s chalkboard. Some of the pictures have helpful labels to inform readers that the building is Harvard Observatory, the man is Edward Pickering, or to make a scientific explanation understandable."
The reviewer even noticed the equation on the blackboard! It was by a famous French female mathematician.
Here is more about the art in a previous blog post http://christinawald.blogspot.com/2011/10/book-trailer-annie-jump-cannon.html
Also, cool news: Carole heard from some relatives of Annie's who enjoyed our book!
