Mae Among the Stars by Roda Ahmed

A great classroom and bedtime read-aloud, Mae Among the Stars is the perfect book for young readers who have big dreams and even bigger hearts.

When Little Mae was a child, she dreamed of dancing in space. She imagined herself surrounded by billions of stars, floating, gliding, and discovering.

She wanted to be an astronaut.

Her mom told her, "If you believe it, and work hard for it, anything is possible."

Little Mae's curiosity, intelligence, and determination, matched with her parents' encouraging words, paved the way for her incredible success at NASA as the first African American woman to travel in space.

This book will inspire other young girls to reach for the stars, to aspire for the impossible, and to persist with childlike imagination.

"Ahmed and Burrington have created a love letter to Jemison with this appealing picture book biography. The emphasis on Jemison's lifelong passion for space science will inspire readers to have confidence in the trajectory of their own interests." -- School Library Journal

"Ahmed's first children's book presents a fictional portrait of a young Mae Jemison, whose parents support her dream of becoming an astronaut; their advice ("If you can dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible") becomes the book's refrain." -- Publishers Weekly
