Mae Jemison: Awesome Astronaut

I read this book last night with my daughter, who is 7. I believe it was released this year - and I found it a great addition to books for girls about women in science.

At one point she asked me, "Is this a real story?!"

It was amazing to learn about all of Jemison's accomplishments throughout the years - including mastering 4 languages and launching several businesses and organizations.

We desperately need more books like this for our girls!!

"Don't let anyone rob you of your imagination, your creativity, or your curiosity. It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live." ~Mae Jemison
