First Women in Space is specifically written to meet the needs of adolescents and adults who are reluctant readers. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easy to decode. This high-interest, low-vocabulary biography is ideal for English as a Second Language or adult basic education students.

Learn about three women who had the "right stuff" Valentina Tereshkova, Sally Ride, and Roberta Bondar. The U.S.S.R. sent Valentina Tereshkova into space in 1963. Twenty years later, Sally Ride becomes the first American woman to fly in space. Canadian Roberta Bondar follows suit in 1992.
