Reviews

"An enchanting, inspirational account of Jemison's early life that illustrates the importance of encouraging and supporting children's dreams." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"Ahmed and Burrington have created a love letter to Jemison with this appealing picture book biography. The emphasis on Jemison's lifelong passion for space science will inspire readers to have confidence in the trajectory of their own interests." -- School Library Journal"Ahmed's first children's book presents a fictional portrait of a young Mae Jemison, whose parents support her dream of becoming an astronaut; their advice ("If you can dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible") becomes the book's refrain." -- Publishers Weekly"A starry addition to picture book biography collections." -- School Library Journal"Burrington's cute, playful paintings match the dreamy focus of the story, particularly her star-splattered nighttime scenes. The inspirational tone
will strike the right note for those just learning about the astronaut." -- Booklist
