Gr 4 Up—Lise Meitner, a Jewish physicist working in Germany as Hitler rose to power, made some of the most
celebrated discoveries in the 20th century, including nuclear fission, and yet never received the recognition she
deserved. With captivating writing and interstitial comics-like illustrations, Moss's biography of this groundbreaking
woman is spectacular.

In this book, is about Kenichi "Zeni" Zenimura, a Japanese-American who was one of the hundreds of thousands placed in an internment camp during WWII. This story follows his love and dedication to the game of baseball which he brought to the internment camp to bring joy in such a hard time. This book could be great for 2rd-3th grade. I would use this in my class to share about finding the good in hard situations, and how when you are determined, you can do so much. You could also form a lesson around how what someone does might affect others.… (mais)

This is a Biographical picture book about the story of Kenichi Zenimura, a Japanese-American baseball player, who helped the sport of baseball and through so much adversity, created a way to be able to do what he loved, even when he was put in an internment camp. I think this book would be good to use for secondary students, even though it is a picture book, to introduce them to different perspectives of WWII, as well as a story of overcoming obstacles that may be in your way.

After I was about halfway through this I chuckled every time the author mentioned that chemist Otto Hahn didn't really understand physics and needed Lise Meitner to interpret results for him. It gets mentioned over and over again. Like, we get it!

It's widely accepted now that Hahn took too much credit for the discovery of nuclear fission (among other achievements) and that he allowed Meitner's contributions to go unacknowledged. Boo Hahn! Yay Meitner!
