To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love the books in the mini movers and shakers series. Each of them features a character from whom young readers can emulate and draw inspiration.
Mae Jemison grew up dreaming to become an astronaut. But she was female and black; surely she would have a difficult path. She also loved to dance. That was a career that some thought more suitable for her.
As Mae became older, she was torn between dancing and medical school. Eventually, she became a doctor. Yet, she could not shake that dream of flying into space. Read the book to find out if she achieved that dream.
The illustrations are gorgeous and the book will surely inspire many female elementary school readers. Highly recommended!
This is an amazing book about an amazing woman. The storyline is engrossing, before you know it you have read the whole book. The illustrations are bright crisp and shows Ms. West in a very favorable way. I highly recommend this book and this series for us all. I had no idea who Mae West was, now I know. When Mae Jemison was a child all she wanted to do was fly. Her parents encourage her and told her to follow her dreams. She also had some who told her only men fly into outer space. Did she listen to her parents or to the public. You get to read/listen to this book about an amazing woman to find out. Enjoy the journey!!
Mae Jemison: A Kid's Book About Reaching Your Dreams (Mini Movers and Shakers 4) is a great addition to Ms. Nhin important new series. Mae Jemison is an important figure and a terrific role model for kids of all ages to derive inspiration and the courage to hold on and pursue their dreams.
I used this book in therapy w several children and each time I see the same smile and eye light up look when they put themselves as the star character and all that they can become . A wonderful book of inspiration
