Reviews for Dana Dash: First Girl on the Moon
Vanessa, Age 9
I like it because it's very twisty and turny. I'm not a very scientific person and I still love the Dana Dash book.
Just finished the book. I loved it. I think it depicts women as scientists in a favorable way. It could inspire girls to think about a career in science.
Loved this! An engaging read for kids and adults alike, especially the science-inclined. As an avid fan of both science fiction and science fact, this book is right up my alley. Eager for the sequel!
