What's To the Stars! About

Publisher Summary

Kathy Sullivan wanted to go everywhere. She loved blueprints and maps. She loved languages and the ocean. She didn’t like the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” She wanted to explore and do exciting things that girls weren’t supposed to be able to do. Only men had the exciting jobs.

Kathy liked fishing and swimming; flying planes and studying science. That’s what she liked and that’s what she decided to do with her life. She followed her heart and eventually became a NASA astronaut and the first woman to walk in space. Kathy wanted to see the whole world and so she did: from space!

Who Wrote To the Stars!

author
Carmella Van Vleet

I’m a former elementary teacher who has been writing full-time for the last twenty years. My debut children’s novel, Eliza Bing Is (Not) A Big, Fat Quitter, received a Christopher Award and was nominated to four state award lists. And my debut picture book, To the Stars! The A First American Woman to Walk in Space, was on the 2017 Amelia Bloomer list. I like lists, cooking shows, taekwondo, and Pez dispensers - but not necessarily in that order.
