air.Her name is not familiar to most people, yet her achievements were major As a child, she dreamed of having a pocketful of airplane tickets so she could see the whole world Unlike her female friends, she wanted to be an adventurer, like a spy or a diplomat She ignored the taunts Girls don t like those jobs , and when she was a teenager, she learned to be a pilot Attractive watercolor and ink illustrations visually use alternating, double page spreads to show how, throughout her childhood and young adulthood, her determination became the impetus for her adult challenges This back and forth perspective, between childhood and adulthood, is effective for the age group In 1978, she became one of the first six women selected to join NASA, and she was the first American woman to walk in

young Sullivan dives into a lake, while on the following spread she s seen working on deep sea submersibles as an adult Wong s lemony ink and watercolor illustrations picture Sullivan as calm and curious, and her decision to pursue exactly what interests her I know what I love, and I m just going to follow that compass may encourage readers to give credence to their own aspirations Extensive

Kathy Sullivan, who, in 1984, became the first American woman to walk in space Double page spreads featuring scenes from her youth alternate with those showing her adult years, while the succinct text

paragraphs introducing other notable women in space An attractive introduction to an American astronaut Booklist A picture book biography of Sullivan, the first woman to do an extravehicular activity commonly known as a space walk during her 1984 mission on the Challenger Whimsical illustrations alternate between Sullivan as a young girl looking over her father s blueprints, daydreaming about seeing the world, and learning to fly and Sullivan as an adult training at NASA and riding the launch into space The text supplies a subtle dose of girl power as readers witness Kathy succeeding

dreaded being asked, What do you want to be when you grow up , as well as a short essay with information on her and other female space pioneers However, only American women are featured here others,
