Look Up!
Illustrated by Raul Colon
Simon & Schuster 2013

"Robert Burleigh investigates a woman astronomer who made a significant discovery in the 1900s when most women in her field "were human 'computers.' Burleigh's narrative is simultaneously succinct, descriptive, and appealing: "When she closed her eyes, she could still see the star dots, dancing across the inside of her eyelids." An afterword about Henrietta Leavitt and her discovery, glossary, bibliography, and other resources round out this attractive picture-book biography." - Kirkus Review
