    This book is written in rhyme with detailed illustrations. After learning about this woman’s struggles and achievements, there are so many extra details in the book. A personal letter from Raye, a timeline, added information about her life, photographs, and sites to follow up with are included.

    I look forward to reading other books in this series!

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

  • Kathy

    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.

  • Susan

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

    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 through easily flowing text which makes them great for reading aloud. There is plenty of additional biographical information in the back of the book, plus a note and picture from the featured scientist!

    I had never heard of Raye Montague until reading this book and I really enjoyed getting to know her inspiring history. Her life is a great example of perseverance and finding new solutions when things don’t go as you want. She faced a lot of discrimination and mistreatment, but she found ways to keep her head up and take whatever opportunities she could. There are a lot of similarities to this story and the one told in Hidden Figures and Raye Montague was even honored as the the US Navy’s first ‘hidden figure.’

    I hope there will be more books to come in this series!

    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 achieve it. It may take you on a road that is less direct than you want, but you can find a way!

    What a fabulous story of a girl who never gave up on what she loved and paved the way for women today! This will definitely

    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 worked overall by telling Raye's story in a playful way. The supplemental materials at the end of the book is great for additional information about Raye, and includes: "Facts and Tidbits from the Author's Chat with Raye",
