Hidden Figures takes the inspirational story of four black women who worked as mathematicians for the US space program and does a nice job of turning it into a picture book for elementary-school readers. Perhaps the most important thing when writing this story for children is to provide some context on how segregation affected the lives of African-Americans in the time period. Accordingly, Shetterly tells her audience how many strictures existed on black people, especially in the South.
They couldn't eat at the same restaurants, drink from the same water fountains, use the same restrooms, attend the same schools, play on the same sports teams, sit near whites in movie theaters or marry someone of a different race.
When the children know this, they will find it all the more remarkable that one of the women, Dorothy Vaughan, was able to get a job as a "computer" for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics. She was really good at math. Shetterly helps to clear up the confusion around the use of the term "computers" as well. Back in those days, people who did computations were called computers.
Nowadays, machines do most of the computing work, and we call them computers. After introducing readers to Dorothy Vaughan and her work, the author goes on to tell us how Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, and Christine Darden all came to work for the space program and gives a little description of the type of work they did. My favorite sequence describes how Johnson persisted until she was allowed to go to the meetings and help the group prepare its research reports.
At first her boss told her that women weren't allowed at the meetings, but she kept asking and he finally invited her to them. She knew she was really good at the math and could be of help to the team. She became the first woman in her group to be able to sign her name to one of their reports. The author also tells a little about the history of the space program: Kennedy's call to put a man on the moon, John Glenn's orbit and how he insisted that Katherine Johnson double-check the mechanical computer's calculations , and the moon landing.
The back matter of the book provides valuable extras: a timeline from the Wright Brothers to the moon landing, short biographies of each woman, and a glossary. I can't say enough about the illustrations in this book. They are colorful, yet refined, and convey the dignity of each woman. The illustrations dominate each page and help to convey the place, the mood, and the sense of progress the story projects.
Cute seal picture alert! A Seal Named Patches tells the story of tracking a Weddell seal by a team of scientists who have traveled to Antarctica to check on one of the oldest seals to see if she has had a prosperous enough year to give birth to a pup. If she doesn't get enough food, or conditions are otherwise harsh, she won't produce a pup in a given year. The seal, which they have named Patches is remarkable because she is 30 years old and has given birth to 21 pups.nn.threadsol.com/27970-cell-telegram.php

The scientists are on a mission to see if she is with pup number The text is written at about a second-grade level with large type and just a few sentences on a page. The authors also provide some context, describing how cold it is in the Antarctic, even during their summer. We learn that the temps range between 0 and 30 degrees F. The book is illustrated with lots of large, high-quality photographs that show the scientists' equipment, the landscape, and especially lots of adorable seal face photos. This book would serve as a nice introduction to Antarctica, the work that scientists do, and--of course--seals.
If there is one thing that can capture the interest of young children, it's band-aids. So, how cool is it to have a book that tells us the story of the invention of band-aids? The wife, Josephine, was accident-prone and often managed to cut herself in the kitchen. Amazingly at the time there was no way to efficiently cover a small wound. Josephine would grab a rag to stop the bleeding, but then it was even harder to do cooking with a bulky rag.
Her husband, Earle, wanted to help. His father had been a doctor, and fortuitously, Earle himself worked for a company that made hospital supplies, so it was up to him to come up with a prototype. He laid down some adhesive tape, put some squares of sterile gauze on top and then put a layer of something called crinoline on top to keep the whole strip sterile.
Now Josephine could simply cut off a hunk whenever she needed it. They were so happy that Earle went off to the company president to show how it worked, and they created the name Band-Aid from a mashup of the words "bandage" and "first "aid. They were slow to make and came in lengths 18 inches long and three inches wide. Rather unwieldy for a small bandage. But, the company kept innovating and eventurally came up with a machine that makes a band-aid more like the one we know today. Even so, the band-aids weren't exactly flying off the shelf until the company got the idea of giving away samples to the boy scouts who were always scraping and cutting themselves.
Mothers recognized a good thing when they saw it, and the band-aid finally caught on, going with the troops during WWII and eventually coming in all the sizes and decorations we see today. This book would make a wonderful read-aloud.

The author teases us by pretending to end the story several times, but then going on to tell us another important part of the band-aid's evolution. It has a kind of "Wait, there's more" feel to it, and I think it will make the kids giggle. Another part that amused me was the description of the ridiculously long and wide band-aid. When I was in school, for some reason the nurses didn't seem to have simple little band-aids.
They had gauze and tape, which they must have thought seemed more seriously medical. I remember going to the nurse with a run-of the mill skinned knee. By the time she was done with me, I had a 4-inch square of gauze and about 3 feet of tape wrapped around my knee. I tried to avoid going to the nurse after that. She made you look like you'd just come back from a war.

I would go home, rip the whole thing off, and put on a little band-aid. The author's note is also well worth reading. Sure, this is a little story about how band-aids came to be, but it's also a story about how the right expertise has to come together, and how a person needs to keep refining a product and then finding ways to market.
This book would be a great introduction to a unit in which children are going to try to make their own inventions. The back matter also has some interesting stuff. There is a timeline which tells us when the first Band-Aids went into space, among other things. Another lists other medical inventions of the time and challenges students to research their story. The illustrations are whimsical and the text is kept short and conversational.
This is one of the best narrative nonfiction books I have seen. Norman is a dog, a special kind of herding dog called a Briard which has long wavy hair and weighs about 75 pounds. Though they seem like big, goofy dogs, they are actually quite smart and loyal.
