    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....

    I received an advance digital copy of this book from Edelweiss + to review. 4.5 stars. I have been thoroughly enjoying The Amazing Scientists series. They use a rhyming text, which is not overly common in non-fiction, but works very well here. The books provide inspiring information...

    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...

    Tells the story of Raye Montague, starting from her family encouraging her to pursue engineering as a child and moving forward to Montague becoming program manager for ship design. The book talks about the racism and sexism she faced. I thought it did a particularly good job handling h...

    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 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 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 ...

    Like the Temple Grandin book, the back matter is amazing but the story itself is really trite and condescending except this time the rhymes are worse. I didn't know the story of Raye Montague, she's amazing, and the tidbits from the author's interview with her in the back matter are so...

    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." ...

    This book is amazing. I saw it in the library and thought I would read it. The illustrations are fantastic. I love the way it is written. It is rhyming and simple. I can read this to any of my storytimes. I will buying this for my school library. Awesome! ...

    I received an advance digital copy of this book from Edelweiss + to review. 4.5 stars. I have been thoroughly enjoying The Amazing Scientists series. They use a rhyming text, which is not overly common in non-fiction, but works very well here. The books provide inspiring information...

    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...

    Tells the story of Raye Montague, starting from her family encouraging her to pursue engineering as a child and moving forward to Montague becoming program manager for ship design. The book talks about the racism and sexism she faced. I thought it did a particularly good job handling h...

    I received a digital review copy through Edelweiss+ in exchange for an honest review. A nice, rhyming biography of gifted mathematician Raye Montague, her accomplishments in engineering, and the struggles she endured to get there. At time the rhyming seemed overly silly, but it work...

    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 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 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 ...

    Like the Temple Grandin book, the back matter is amazing but the story itself is really trite and condescending except this time the rhymes are worse. I didn't know the story of Raye Montague, she's amazing, and the tidbits from the author's interview with her in the back matter are so...

    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...

    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." ...

    This book is amazing. I saw it in the library and thought I would read it. The illustrations are fantastic. I love the way it is written. It is rhyming and simple. I can read this to any of my storytimes. I will buying this for my school library. Awesome! ...

    Give to fans of "Hidden Figures", as math-minded women of color facing down discrimination with class and smarts weren't solely at NASA, but the Navy too. ...

    A great book to learn about Raye Montague with phenomenal back matter. Unfortunately the rhyming text diminishes the impact of the inspirational story. ...

    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...

    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 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 book is amazing. I saw it in the library and thought I would read it. The illustrations are fantastic. I love the way it is written. It is rhyming and simple. I can read this to any of my storytimes. I will buying this for my school library. Awesome! ...

    Give to fans of "Hidden Figures", as math-minded women of color facing down discrimination with class and smarts weren't solely at NASA, but the Navy too. ...

    The story of an amazing woman. ...

    Love the verse! ...

    I received an e-arc from Edelweiss in exchange for my honest review. Being a teacher, I am always looking for books that empower my students. We encourage having a Growth Mindset and the story of Ray Montague is a fabulous example of how if you put your mind to something you can ac...

    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 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 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 ...

    Like the Temple Grandin book, the back matter is amazing but the story itself is really trite and condescending except this time the rhymes are worse. I didn't know the story of Raye Montague, she's amazing, and the tidbits from the author's interview with her in the back matter are so...

    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...

    Wonderful illustrations, perfect for a read-aloud. Not overly sweet, but realistic and inspirational. I loved the rhymes, adding to the read-aloud potential! ...

    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....

    I received an advance digital copy of this book from Edelweiss + to review. 4.5 stars. I have been thoroughly enjoying The Amazing Scientists series. They use a rhyming text, which is not overly common in non-fiction, but works very well here. The books provide inspiring information...

    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...

    Tells the story of Raye Montague, starting from her family encouraging her to pursue engineering as a child and moving forward to Montague becoming program manager for ship design. The book talks about the racism and sexism she faced. I thought it did a particularly good job handling h...

    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...

    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." ...

    This book is amazing. I saw it in the library and thought I would read it. The illustrations are fantastic. I love the way it is written. It is rhyming and simple. I can read this to any of my storytimes. I will buying this for my school library. Awesome! ...

    Give to fans of "Hidden Figures", as math-minded women of color facing down discrimination with class and smarts weren't solely at NASA, but the Navy too. ...

    A great book to learn about Raye Montague with phenomenal back matter. Unfortunately the rhyming text diminishes the impact of the inspirational story. ...

    The story of an amazing woman. ...

    Love the verse! ...

    A story well told about a woman who was brilliant in the field of math, and overcame obstacles (being black and being a woman in a field dominated by men) to prove herself. She perservered. ...

    Well researched, masterfully written, and beautifully illustrated - a well deserved tribute to an amazing woman. ...

    Another "hidden figure" in the STEM world revealed ...

    Inspiring mathematician deserves better rhymes. ...

    I'd never heard of Raye Montague before. Sure glad I checked this book out! ...

    Awesome story of another ?Hidden Figure?! ...

    This is an absolutely great biography but to tell the truth it is a bit boring. ...

    loved it! ...
