Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 3-5. This short biography from the American Lives series introduces astronaut Jemison. Growing up in Chicago, Jemison read astronomy books and dreamed of traveling in space. She became a medical doctor before signing on to become a shuttle mission specialist for NASA. In 1992 she became the first African American woman in space. The text concludes with her setting up an educational foundation in 1994. Back matter includes a glossary and very brief lists of books to read and sites to visit. Large print, patterned side borders, many illustrations, and colored captions and sidebars make for crowded pages, but this basic biography provides a clear, interesting account of Jemison's life and work. The series, which also includes books on Eileen Collins and Luisa Moreno, features a wide range of luminaries, men as well as women. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2006 Booklist"
