Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Friday, January 29, 2021
I read this book earlier in the pandemic (summer) but I want really online much around that time and I mislaid the book without registering it. Anyway, I found it today with something I'd set aside for my nephew (who's much too young for it-- he's just a baby) so I am registering it now.

I have the regular version of this book on my TBR pile so I can't compare the two yet, but the Young Readers' Edition was a good read (a quick one for me, since I'm not actually a Young Reader, but still interesting).

The part that I remember best is actually a part about an experiment demonstrating air flow/turbulence (including a photo on page 106). My husband used to fly small aircraft, and I remember quizzing him about things relating to this (wing tip vortices) while he was studying this science in ground school, so that part stuck out for me. I thought it was pretty neat that Katherine Johnson was part of the research on that subject (and I was also a little surprised they hadn't already figured that of before she got the chance to do it)!

Anyway, I have some ideas for releasing this but I'm not doing much of that right now, so we'll have to wait and see.
