An inspirational true-story about the a group of seamstresses who designed the spacesuit for the first men to walk on the Moon! "Ellie's team was small, and they only had six weeks. Many believed that the seamstresses could never win. But Ellie ignored them and set to work." Inspired by true events, The Spacesuit tells the story of Ellie, a seamstress tasked with creating a new spacesuit for the Apollo 11 moon landing. After emerging as the underdogs in a multi-company competition, Ellie's team works hard to win! Follow Ellie as she uses impressive knowledge to solve the issue of clunky, uncomfortable spacesuits. The perfect book for young children interested in space exploration and women in history. Alison Donald expertly weaves facts into the story to keep young readers engaged. Including a glossary of key terms, this book is a fun learning tool for 3-6 year olds.
