Collins Big Cat - To the Moon and Back: The Story of Katherine Johnson: Band 16/Sapphire

Paperback

This is the remarkable story of Katherine Johnson, a mathematician who worked for the American Space Agency. She was part of the team that helped Neil Armstrong land on the Moon for the very first time. She was an African American woman and had to fight against racism and sexism to do the job that she loved and was exceptionally good at.

Sapphire/Band 16 books offer longer reads to develop children's sustained engagement with texts and are more complex syntactically.

Ideas for reading in the back of the book provide practical support and stimulating activities.

Book banded for guided and independent reading, there are reading notes in the back, comprehensive teaching and assessment support and ebooks available.

Children will become fluent readers through hundreds of high-quality fiction and non-fiction banded books by award-winning authors and illustrators.
