This is a beautifully illustrated and simply told story about the first female African-American astronaut, Mae Jamison. My only complaint is that it is TOO simple. Mae goes from being a little girl told she could never go to space to going to space, and the only detail on how she did it is basically by believing in herself and her dreams, and putting her mind to it. I‘m guessing there might have been a little more to it than that. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Cute picture book based on Mae Jemison and her quest to become an astronaut. I really enjoyed the illustrations and the story was accessible. I appreciated the part where her teacher told her maybe she should do something else. I think it is hard for kids to know that sometimes adults who are supposed to be supportive won‘t be but that doesn‘t mean you should give up.
