A gentle warning from the Hullabaloo Crew: This book contains scientific discoveries and theories that will bring up A LOT of questions on subjects that may or may not be appropriate for some children. Readiness depends on maturity, level of curiosity of the child, and willingness to discuss on the adult reader's part. We think this book could be invaluable to the child inspired by STEM material but younger readers should be overseen by a trusted adult.
WOW! This is Ella's new favorite book by far! She enjoyed the art on the cover, stayed engaged throughout, (even though her first words were, "Wow, that is a big book!") and had her saying things like "It made me feel like I want to be like them."
It was a learning experience for the whole family. We each took away something different from each story and found inspiration in these amazing women. -Taylor, mother to Ella (age 7), Fort Worth, TX

The whole family LOVED reading stories about amazing female athletes. We especially liked being able to read about athletes my children had heard of. This book encourages all children to chase their dreams and also the importance of hard work and practice. In today's world of instant gratification, sometimes the lessons of true grit and determination get lost. Reading about actual athletes and how hard they worked to reach their goals is inspiring. One fun thing that happened after we read this book was we were able to pull up some of the athletes on YouTube and watch their gold medal performances. As a family who loves skiing, my daughter wanted to read about Lindsey Vonn first. "Mom, looks, it's Lindsey!" -Becky, mother of two (ages 7 & 8), Virginia Beach, VA
