Mae among the stars  Cover Image Book Book

Mae among the stars / written by Roda Ahmed ; illustrations by Stasia Burrington.

Ahmed, Roda, 1981- (author.). Burrington, Stasia, (illustrator.).

Summary:

Mae wanted to be an astronaut. She dreamed of dancing in space. She imagined herself surrounded by billions of stars, floating, gliding, and discovering. Her parents encouraged her, saying, "If you believe it, and work hard for it, anything is possible." This encouragement, along with Mae's own curiosity, intelligence, and determination, paved the way for her to become the first African American woman to travel in space.-- Adapted from publisher's description.
