The Spacesuit: How a Seamstress Helped Put Man on the Moon
The Spacesuit: How a Seamstress Helped Put Man on the Moon is inspired by the real story of Eleanor “Ellie” Foraker. When Ellie was young, she used to sew her own designs. Later, she got a job sewing baby clothes. Someone noticed her talent and asked her to sew a spacesuit for a competition. This book goes on to tell the story of the team of people who worked to make a suit that would protect the astronauts as they walked on the moon. There are loads of facts throughout this book, and even the covers have some spacesuit facts. The end of the book has a glossary and a QR code to scan if you want to learn more! The illustrations by Ariel Landy are pretty good. I like that they are very colorful cartoons. I recommend this book for boys and girls of all ages who like space. If you are interested in stories of women in American history, you’ll like this book.
