Mae Among The Stars follows a young Mae Jemison who dreams of dancing in space. She imagines herself surrounded by billions of stars floating, gliding and discovering. 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 not only tells the story of Mae Jemison, it inspires children to pursue their dreams no matter what obstacles they face.
“After years of looking for picture books about Mae, I decided to make one myself. I want kids growing up to know about her amazing story the way we know about all the other great astronauts such as Sally Ride, Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong. I want to add Mae Jemison to the stories we tell our kids.” - Roda Ahmed
