Hidden Figures

By: Margot Lee Shetterly

This was the younger version of the book Hidden Figures. It was an incredible story of the women who helped put men in space and their journey through the lows and highs of the workplace.-Norah

Mummies Exposed!

By: Kerrie Logan Hollihan

This book was really good. The author gave us one of her advance copies before the book came out which was very kind of her. We really enjoyed this book because every single mummy was different, for example why they were mummified, how they were mummified and, how they were discovered all varied from chapter to chapter. Also, the pictures were so cool. Finally, two more things we should mention is it is that it did creep some of us out and it was on the short side.-Norah, Lena, Allie, Annabelle

Gods and Heroes: Mythology Around the World

By:Korwin Briggs

I loved this book. It was a great informational book and I would recommend this book to anyone who loves learning about past civilizations and and their mythology. While it may not have every single god or goddess it definitely has plenty of information of that sort. This book also has a bunch of great information about other aspects of mythology. -Annabelle

A Really Short History of Nearly Everything

By: Bill Bryson

I enjoyed this book a lot. It was full of information that was written in a funny way. It had info on genes and geography, prehistoric people to present day. If you like almanacs or fact books this is the perfect book for you.-Norah

Wild at Heart

By: Terri Farley

This is a book about how horses are being abused and captured. If you like book that gives you reasons to hate humans but then give you hope that not all humans are horrible this gives you plenty of that.-Norah

The Forbidden Schoolhouse

By: Suzanne Jurmain

This was really good. It was about a woman that started a school for African American children. No one in town agreed with her and she and her students suffered greatly as a cause of their modern outlook on life. If you are interested in unsung woman heroes and heros in black history this is very informative.-Norah
