Mae Among the Stars

A beautiful picture book for sharing, inspired by the life of the first African American woman to travel in space, Mae Jemison.

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.
