Grades 3-7. Wonderful to see a story about a female scientist. Local author. Good for a discussion about how women's roles have changed over time. The only challenge in sharing this with children will be that her research/discoveries are pretty technical and I don't know that the significance of her discoveries will be completely appreciated or understood. Great to match up with a unit on space and/or female scientists. I thought it was awesome-- but I love learning about outer space!

I really liked this book. The story did a nice job of portraying the life of Annie Jump Cannon while making the story engaging. I also enjoyed the illustrations and thought they complimented the story. I had never heard of her before I read this book. I would recommend.
