An inspiring kids book telling the story of Kathy Sullivan, geologist, astronaut, and first woman to walk in space.
Follow her story—written by Kathy herself—from little Kathy, studying the blueprints of airplanes her father used to bring home, to the first time she knew she wanted to be an adventurer, when people told her to think about being a nurse, or a teacher, or a mom. Watch as Kathy learns to pilot a plane, and begins the journey that will eventually take her to infinity and beyond! The story is told in a series of flashbacks and space shots, juxtaposing the little girl who had a dream with the woman who made it happen. Little girls with adventurous spirits are sure to relate to Kathy, at any age!
A great age for exploring the world around and climbing trees. Eight year olds are smart, resilient and very imaginative. Spy kits and secret agent stuff are very appealing. Or presents that involve setting up traps and alarms. For the more stylish 8 year old, a cool watch is a popular present. Or chalk to colour your hair.
