Mae Jemison (Little People, Big Dreams)

When Mae Jemison was a little girl, she dreamed of blasting off into space on a rocket ship. She was so excited as she watched the Apollo Moon landings, but she wondered... why were none of the astronauts women? Mae loved science and was so bright that she started college at just 16, and was training to be a doctor by the age of 20. She joined the Peace Corps, using her medical knowledge to help people in countries all around the world. Upon returning to the United States, she was accepted into NASA’s astronaut program — and after hard work and training, in 1992 Mae became the first Black woman to travel into space!

This inspiring book from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the groundbreaking astronaut’s life. For any child who has looked up and dreamed of traveling to space — or any one who needs to hear that dreams can come true — Mae's story will remind them that there's no limits to what you can do!
