This evening at storytime with my daughter we read Mae Among the Stars. It's not the first time we've read this book at bedtime, but it was the first time my daughter had such a strong reaction to it. She started repeating a phrase from the book like a mantra "If I can dream it, believe in it, work hard for it, anything is possible." The sheer look of determination on her face was priceless. She says she wants to be an astronaut like Dr. Mae Jamison, but that she also wants to be a teacher and a doctor. Then she said she's pretty sure she can do all three.
If you've never read this book to your kids, I highly recommend it.
