Margaret and the Moon: The Computer Scientist Who Saved the First Lunar LandingMargaret and the Moon: The Computer Scientist Who Saved the First Lunar Landing by Dean   Robbins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another great picture book of someone who made a contribution to the world and whose story hasn’t been heard until now.

One of the traits I enjoyed about Margaret Hamilton was her being prepared for any scenario that may happen. Of course, she had a plan!

I loved the photos of Margaret and how they were used as inspirations for certain illustrations.

    The youngest granddaughter in KDG has been studying space and the planets & recently about going to the moon. She will love this, and I will, too! I do love all these bios about people who’ve done great things & we never heard of them, until now! Thanks, Earl!

    I’ve never heard of this one! Margaret Hamilton sounds like a very inspiring person, and I’m glad her story is being shared with curious young minds and budding scientists!
