    In this rhyming picture book, readers are introduced to Raye Montague. "Who?" my young readers asked when I showed this book to them. And truth be told, I asked the same question when I received it. Raye Montague is an African American from Arkansas, and, it turned out, a whiz at math....

    First, Raye Montague is awesome & an incredibly inspiring woman. Unfortunately, this book doesn?t do her justice. It is written in very clunky rhyme. I often enjoy rhyme, but the rhyme in this book was just bad and distracted me from the story. For example: ?Say WHAAATT?!! Yo...

    Biography of Raye Montague for elementary level readers. Told as a poem. Talks about the adversity she overcame to become an engineer who built submarines. Timeline, biographical info and excerpts from the author's interview with Montague at the end. ...

    Told in rhyming verse. Handles racist and misogynist episodes as part of the story but without lingering. While Montague had "mind for math" she applied it to engineering, finally earning the title, "Engineer." ...

    In this rhyming picture book, readers are introduced to Raye Montague. "Who?" my young readers asked when I showed this book to them. And truth be told, I asked the same question when I received it. Raye Montague is an African American from Arkansas, and, it turned out, a whiz at math....

    (K-grade 4) This upbeat rhyming picture book tells the story of Raye Montague, a plucky genius most of us have never heard of. When her grandpa took her to see a former WWII submarine, Raye immediately knew she wanted to be an engineer and build submarines. As a black girl in Arkansas ...

    A Hidden Figure from the US Navy, Raye Montague started with 3 strikes against her: she was a girl, she was black, and she went to bad segregated schools. From that, she rose to designing a ship by computer in an impossibly short amount of time and eventually became a registered Profes...

    The story of Raye Montague told in picture book form. I learn so much from children's picture books. This is a story of the first black woman engineer working for the Navy. She is amazing. Never one to complain about the mistreatment she faces at the hands of mostly white men, she kept...

    This was a wonderful book, but would have been improved substantially if the text wasn't rhyming, thus giving the impression that this is a book for little kids only. I think this could be a great discussion-starter for OLDER kids, but they are going to be put off by the rhymes... and ...

    First, Raye Montague is awesome & an incredibly inspiring woman. Unfortunately, this book doesn?t do her justice. It is written in very clunky rhyme. I often enjoy rhyme, but the rhyme in this book was just bad and distracted me from the story. For example: ?Say WHAAATT?!! Yo...

    (K-grade 4) This upbeat rhyming picture book tells the story of Raye Montague, a plucky genius most of us have never heard of. When her grandpa took her to see a former WWII submarine, Raye immediately knew she wanted to be an engineer and build submarines. As a black girl in Arkansas ...

    A Hidden Figure from the US Navy, Raye Montague started with 3 strikes against her: she was a girl, she was black, and she went to bad segregated schools. From that, she rose to designing a ship by computer in an impossibly short amount of time and eventually became a registered Profes...

    This is a great series, inspiring and motivating children to embrace diversity and strive to achieve their dreams. This was a familiar story to me. I found the author told it in this book very well. It is written in rhyming verse, which I found was generally pulled off well. However, ...

    The story of Raye Montague told in picture book form. I learn so much from children's picture books. This is a story of the first black woman engineer working for the Navy. She is amazing. Never one to complain about the mistreatment she faces at the hands of mostly white men, she kept...

    A+++++ for the story of the incredible Raye Montague. A solid C for the execution of the book. The rhyme makes it almost *too* childish, although this particular entry in the series succeeds in conveying the important information better than some others. However.... ABHORRIBLE? Real...

    This is the true story of a black woman who sought her dream to be an engineer when racism and sexism stood in her way. She worked hard and eventually she even accomplished something NO ONE in the world had done before. At the back of the book there is a timeline of Raye Montague's l...

    A Hidden Figure from the US Navy, Raye Montague started with 3 strikes against her: she was a girl, she was black, and she went to bad segregated schools. From that, she rose to designing a ship by computer in an impossibly short amount of time and eventually became a registered Profes...

    This is a great series, inspiring and motivating children to embrace diversity and strive to achieve their dreams. This was a familiar story to me. I found the author told it in this book very well. It is written in rhyming verse, which I found was generally pulled off well. However, ...

    The story of Raye Montague told in picture book form. I learn so much from children's picture books. This is a story of the first black woman engineer working for the Navy. She is amazing. Never one to complain about the mistreatment she faces at the hands of mostly white men, she kept...

    A+++++ for the story of the incredible Raye Montague. A solid C for the execution of the book. The rhyme makes it almost *too* childish, although this particular entry in the series succeeds in conveying the important information better than some others. However.... ABHORRIBLE? Real...

    An incredible picture book biography of engineer Raye Montague who grew up in Arkansas and lived during a time of segregation. She continually pushed and endured to become a civilian engineer with the US Navy and be the first person to design a submarine via computer in record time. An...

    This was a wonderful book, but would have been improved substantially if the text wasn't rhyming, thus giving the impression that this is a book for little kids only. I think this could be a great discussion-starter for OLDER kids, but they are going to be put off by the rhymes... and ...

    Excellent biographical picture book that is appealing, informative and inspiring! Fun rhyming text, and charming illustrations introduce a truly remarkable woman to kids. The back matter is outstanding! The author interviewed Raye Montague and parts of that interview are included along...

    This is the true story of a black woman who sought her dream to be an engineer when racism and sexism stood in her way. She worked hard and eventually she even accomplished something NO ONE in the world had done before. At the back of the book there is a timeline of Raye Montague's l...

    Biography of Raye Montague for elementary level readers. Told as a poem. Talks about the adversity she overcame to become an engineer who built submarines. Timeline, biographical info and excerpts from the author's interview with Montague at the end. ...

    Told in rhyming verse. Handles racist and misogynist episodes as part of the story but without lingering. While Montague had "mind for math" she applied it to engineering, finally earning the title, "Engineer." ...

    In this rhyming picture book, readers are introduced to Raye Montague. "Who?" my young readers asked when I showed this book to them. And truth be told, I asked the same question when I received it. Raye Montague is an African American from Arkansas, and, it turned out, a whiz at math....

    First, Raye Montague is awesome & an incredibly inspiring woman. Unfortunately, this book doesn?t do her justice. It is written in very clunky rhyme. I often enjoy rhyme, but the rhyme in this book was just bad and distracted me from the story. For example: ?Say WHAAATT?!! Yo...

    (K-grade 4) This upbeat rhyming picture book tells the story of Raye Montague, a plucky genius most of us have never heard of. When her grandpa took her to see a former WWII submarine, Raye immediately knew she wanted to be an engineer and build submarines. As a black girl in Arkansas ...
