    This book is about Mary Jackson, who worked as an engineer for NASA. She was NASA's first African-American female engineer, and she helped design the spacecraft that first carried men to the moon. This is a good book for homeschoolers & classrooms for children in pre-K and kindergarten - and maybe even 1st grade. There is an activity to do at the back of the book along with extra information. Although most of the book does not rhyme, there is an odd kind of rhyming poem in the beginning. This book is about Mary Jackson, who worked as an engineer for NASA.
