A big, beautiful biography of astronaut Ellen Ochoa. Fairly comprehensive for a picture book biography, and with wonderful full-bleed illustrations of Ellen's childhood and career (including a fun one of her brushing her teeth upside down on the Discovery).

Back matter includes an author's note, illustrator's note, timeline of important events, selected bibliography, and source notes.

Prince Rakoto of Madagascar is very young when his father, the king, passes. As his first act as king, Rakoto orders the court doctor, magician, and councilor in turn to bring his father back. Finally he turns to the Wise Woman who tells him a story about why people die and do not return. He goes on to become a loving and just ruler.

Wonderful picture book that highlights Helen Keller. This book has it all! It mentions her accomplishments while discussing how she overcame her challenges of being deaf and blind. Young readers will enjoy this uplifting and inspiring story that is beautifully written and easy for students to understand.
