Based on the life of Mae Carol Jemison, this picture book is a great read to illustrate how you can be anything you set your mind to -- together with hard work, of course. I like how Mae didn't let her teacher's comment get her down, and how she talked out her disappointment with her parents. Reach for the moon and you will find the stars.

This book is just fantastic. Simple clear text and gentle illustrations following the evolution of a dream.

A great book! My 3- and 4-year-olds loved it and now have added "being an astronaut" to the long list of things they aspire to be! Nice non-fiction story that moves along well. Good story.
