April is for stargazers, and have I got a dazzling picture book for all you stargazers:
Wow! The stuff you can learn in a picture book! If you (and your young readers) like space, stars, and smart and resilient women, this book is for you. Sandra Nickel brilliantly weaves the story of how astronomer, Vera Rubin, overcame barriers to help prove the existence of dark matter. Aimée Sicuro's watercolor, ink, and charcoal pencil illustrations weave a story all their own (and include bonuses I love, illustrated end papers and a surprise under the dust jacket!). Wonderful book!

Heather is a busy wife and mom of five rambunctious children and one lovable pup They all provide lots of distractions, but oodles of inspiration. Sometimes the pictures and ideas in her head turn into her own children's stories, but she always makes time to read other people's books. Sometimes she reviews them here.
