Grades 3 7 Wonderful to see a story about a female scientist Local author Good for a discussion about how women's roles have changed over time The only challenge in sharing this with children will be that her researchdiscoveries are pretty technical and I don't know that the significance of her discoveries will be completely appreciated or understood Great to match up with a unit on space andor female scientists I thought it was awesome but I love learning about outer space

N addition to noting the achievements of the astronomer and her contributions to science the book details Cannon's work and system of ranking stars by hea. This book was a nice introduction to the life of Annie Jump Cannon She blazed the trail for women in the field of astronomy but I had never even heard of her Where was she when when Meeting of Minds was a project for school This is a good jumping off point for developing an interest in astronomy and in Annie in particular
