This is a rhyming-text picture book about Raye Montague. After touring a German submarine in the early 1940s, young Raye set her sights on becoming an engineer. Little did she know sexism and racial inequality would challenge that dream every step of the way, even keeping her greatest career accomplishment a secret for decades. Through it all, the gifted mathematician persisted-- finally gaining her well-deserved title in history: a pioneer who changed the course of ship design forever.--Dust jacket.

Oh my goodness! What a passion, strong resolve and constitution this person had even as a little child! The story of this gifted mathematician was written for grades K-3 yet compelling to engage adults. I inhaled it! If you ever feel tempted to stop short of your dream, read this book. It just may change your mind!
