💪🏾💪🏽💪🏿On the last day of Black History Month, let's celebrate the first Black American woman astronaut, Dr. Mae Jemison.💪🏼💪🏾💪🏿 . . "Mae Among the Stars" by Roda Ahmed and @stasiaburrington is a darling story of young Mae who dreams of being the Earth from outer space and who follows those dreams with encouragement of her loving family. . . . The story is a wonderful example of #ownvoices, a hashtag coined by Young Adult author and disability advocate Corrine Duyvis.  #OwnVoices means a book written by someone who shares an identity with the character or group of characters in the story. "Mae Among the Stars", for example, is about a Black cis-gender girl, and was authored by a Black cis-gender woman.  An #ownvoices book is able to bring authenticity, nuance, and authority to the story, because the author is writing from a place of lived experience rather than secondary research. . . As a bonus for "Mae Among the Stars" is the "Women of NASA" LEGO set that includes a space shuttle and minifig of Dr. Jemison herself! After you read the book, you can let your little one walk in Dr. Jemison's shoes and fly to the stars themselves! . . .🚀🌎🚀🌠🚀🌛🌎🚀🌠🚀🌛🌎🚀🌠🚀🌛🌎🚀 #bhm2019 #bhm #blackhistorymonth #blackhistoryottawa #nothingaboutuswithoutus #diversitymatters #representationmatters #ottawa #ottcity #myottawa #ottawaparents #613parents #teachersofinstagram #positiveparenting #diversityandinclusion #undecadeforpeopleofafricandescent #parentsofinstagram #igersottawa #culture #diversebooks #kidlit #weneeddiversebooks #picturebooksaremyjam #maeamongthestars #rodaahmed
Yesterday I had the joy of doing storytime for my son’s FDK class! They’re learning about space right now and I had such a blast with these three books. “The Story of Stars” is an amazing book from my youngest son’s library and it kept the FDK’s enthralled for a good 15 minutes! Such great information presented in such a fun environment! #storytime #fdkstorytime #kindergartenstorytime #childrenslibrary #spacestorytime #5littlerockets #whenyourmomisalibrarian #stars #maeamongthestars #storyofstars #professorastrocat
Hooray for #blackhistorymonth! We are celebrating #preschool style by learning about just some of the #amazingafricanamericans in our history, each day this week. We started out with a #blastoff to the Stars with the incredible @maejemison. This amazing #blackwoman in history was the ultimate achiever! Not only was she the first black woman to go into space, she was also a #dancer, #teacher, #doctor #peacecorps volunteer #author and #scientist!! WHOA! My preschoolers were absolutely amazed at the story of #maejemison and their horizons were truly broadened after reading #maeamongthestars and seeing how a little girl like them had BIG dreams and despite being laughed at by her fellow classmates she believed, worked hard and achieved the seemingly impossible. Can you tell I’m #inspired? ❤️ #blackhistory #womenshistory #blackpioneers #womenofstem #preschoolsocialstudies #preschoolhistory #preschoolblackhistory  #kidsofinstagram #preschoolactivities #teachersofinstagram #daycare #childcare #earlylearning #earlychildhoodeducation #masaisplayhousellc
I just had the best time sharing this beautiful book and project with my son’s first grade class! ✨✨✨ Mae Among the Stars is based on the life of Mae Jemison, the first African American female astronaut. We made our own galaxy art with white crayons and bleeding tissue paper... we have to wait until tomorrow to see how they all turned out, but I’m sure they’re going to be gorgeous! ✨ This month’s @kidlitpicks theme is trailblazers- people like Mae Jemison who have paved the way for others. To find other beautiful books like this one, follow @kidlitbookbits @homegrownreader and @alittlebookhabit. And tag your own great finds with #kidlitpicks_trailblazers to join in the last few days of fun this month! . . . #maeamongthestars @roda_ahmed @stasiaburrington
Interactive read alouds are my absolute FAVE. My students learn not only vital reading strategies, but we discuss important themes and topics as well. I have been starting to organize my notes into actual lesson plans and sticky notes—link in profile for this resource! Many more will be coming soon.  Last week, we read “Mae Among the Stars” (if you don’t yet have this—get it), and discussed what it means to persevere.  Next week, we will dive deeper into the book and start an extension writing activity with it. 🚀📖
These plantable seed paper stars made the perfect take-home for @londonsreadathon. Inspired by the beautiful children's book, Mae Among the Stars. Visit London's YouTube page to hear her read it.

“If you dream it, believe in it, and work hard for it, anything is possible.” This week @SHE_School and #millwoodelementary we read the wonderful #maeamongthestars by @roda_ahmed .

Mae Among the Stars By Roda Ahmed Illustrated by Stasia Burrington * This is inspired by the true story of Mae Jemison, the first black woman in space! It describes Mae as a child who daydreamed of viewing the earth from outer space. Her parents’ encouraging refrain throughout the book is, “If you can dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible.” Wonderful book to encourage future astronauts, mathematicians, and scientists! * * #stem #stembooks #stemforgirls #girlpower #maeamongthestars #maejemison #blackhistory #blackhistorymonth #blackhistorybooks #shamelessbibliophile #kidlit #diversekidlit #representationmatters #rodaahmed #authorsofcolor #wocauthors #illustratorsofcolor #wocillustrators #shamelessbibliophile_blackhistory #stasiaburrington #blackhistoryforkids #shamelessbibliophile_girlpower
Throwback to this read 📖  #maeamongthestars #readingwithcadice
Mae Among The Stars is inspired by the story of Mae Jemison turning her dream of going to space into a reality.  This story follows Mae’s childhood dream of seeing Earth from space. Even though her teachers discouraged her, her parents championed her ambitions telling her “if you can dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible”. In 1987  Mae Jemison was accepted into NASA’s astronaut training program and was the first female African American astronaut to go to space in 1992. In addition to being an astronaut she was also a medical doctor and a dancer.

Meet the awesome readers from @wilmarneighborhoodcenter! We read and craft every month with our newest partner on the near east side.

Today in our Homeschool lesson we learned more about Dr. Mae Jemison.  We read the book, "Mae Among The Stars" By: Roda Ahmed Illustrated by: Stasia Burrington, and studied galaxies.  As a part of our lesson, Cadance made her own galaxy. Her galaxy has "the ocean, stars, and peaches." She named it "The Star" galaxy.  #homeschool #drmaejemison #maeamongthestars #mommyandme #astronomy #science #stars #galaxy #rodaahmed #stasiaburrington
On a cold winter's day, we held a little "book-tasting" event for introducing some of our new arrivals. Post-it notes were available for the children to record their recommendations. #maeamongthestars #booktalk #classroomlibrary #literarygenres #growingreaders #tcrwp #nctegram

Who’s ready for black history month 💚💚💚This isnt even close to being all of our black pride books 💚.

📖Book of the Month: Mae Among the Stars by @rodaworld (Author), Stasia Burrington (Illustrator)  A beautiful picture book for sharing, inspired by the life of the first African American woman to travel in space, Mae Jemison. A great classroom and bedtime read-aloud, Mae Among the Stars is the perfect book for young readers who have big dreams and even bigger hearts!  When Little Mae was a child, she dreamed of dancing in space. She imagined herself surrounded by billions of stars, floating, gliding, and discovering. She wanted to be an astronaut. Her mom told her, "If you believe it, and work hard for it, anything is possible.” Little Mae’s curiosity, intelligence, and determination, matched with her parents' encouraging words, paved the way for her incredible success at NASA as the first African American woman to travel in space. This book will inspire other young girls to reach for the stars, to aspire for the impossible, and to persist with childlike imagination. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .#MadisonReadingProject #bookofthemonth #maeamongthestars #maejemison  #nasa #astronaut #rodaahmed #stasiaburrington #nowreading #booksforkids #donatebooks #inspirereading #childrensbooks #kidlit#literacy #sharebooks  #dreams #anythingispossible #spacetravel #picturebook #bookworm #diversebooks #readersofinstagram #homelibrary #spreadliteracy
Nadia got her signed copy in the mail from the author. So sweet! @rodaworld #maejemison #maeamongthestars
Gracie and I came across this book and it’s gotta be one of my favorites, especially since grace is going through a space phase. “Among the stars”, if you can dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible.  #gpennyshow #readingisfun  #lovemylittlegirl #maeamongthestars
Just in, local artist @stasiaburrington illustrated a kids book! We were finally able to get this in from our distributors! It’s an adorable story about a kid who loves space and dreams big! #outsidercomics #outsidercomicsandgeekboutique #maeamongthestars #stasiaburrington
We loved Mae Among The Stars!✨ We received this beautiful autographed copy and instantly fell in love with it. The story of Mae Jemison and her girlhood dream of going to space inspired us to create, color, explore outer space, and make our own space suit. Thank you #rodaahmed for the glorious book and inspiring our storytime yesterday. Add it to your baby's library! . . . . #melaninandbooks #blackbooks #childrensbooks #maeamongthestars #iammelanin #revolutionarymotherhood

#dearcharlieandchase,  Follow your heart, your dreams and your passion always. I love you 😘  If you dream it, if you believe it and work hard for it, anything is possible. - Favorite line from this very inspiring book. #maeamongthestars
Reading this one again, because of Nadia's obsessions with going into space. We've watched a little video about Mae Jemison on YouTube a few times, and Nadia says "Awww" and gasps delightedly every time she sees her. I think we've found her hero. #maeamongthestars #maejemison #big dreams
My daughter has grown increasingly fond of airplanes since she was able to spot them in the sky. She now is obsessed with the museum of flight and tells me she wants to fly planes and be an astronaut. The challenge however remains, how do I foster this love of hers? And tell her she can fly planes when many examples and images are of men flying planes and women being airline attendants? Thank god for this book I found “Mae amongst the Stars” because when I read it to her I can see the stars in her eyes and she is reassured that ’anything is possible’. Great read! #alma_grace #maejemison #maeamongthestars
4 days until Roda Ahmed visits, to share her tremendous book, Mae Among the Stars! "In the mural you can see Alan B. Shepard, Eileen Collins and Sally Ride but not Mae Jemison. This is why I wrote #maeamongthestars . I want kids to grow up knowing who Mae Jemison is. I want to add her to the stories we tell our children." -Roda Ahmed 📷:@rodaworld  #authorvisit #vanwa #librariesofinstagram #maejemison
This picture book is based on the real life story of Mae Jamison, the first African American woman to travel in space. It’s a simple but inspiring read with just the right amount of text and engaging pictures for the young readers.

Just finished my niece Darla's January "invitation to imagine" kit! The theme is space travel 👧🌌 I'm having too much fun with these! May or may not have spent too much time playing with everything 😄 We'll see how she does with it! I also really enjoyed the two books, Mae Among the Stars & The Darkest Dark. They are co-authored by two real astronauts. I didn't grow  up reading these, but happy I came across them and perfect for my theme! 📚📖 #invitationtoplay #imagination #space #outerspace #missdarla #ohmydarla #toys #playdough #homemadeplaydough #childrenatplay #thedarkestdark #maeamongthestars #girlpower #stem #stemgirls #stemtoys #invitationtoimagine #playideas #playbasedlearning #play #sensoryplay

🍭2018 #kidlit Favorites 🍭 . We read probably hundreds of new-to-us picture books this year, but these four stuck out and were beloved by both my kids (3 and 6) and me. Each of these books were brought to me to be read again and again and I never got tired of any of them. Those two things are the true test of a great picture book in my mind . . They all have in common: exquisite illustrations that are bright and engaging, lots of surprises for eyes and ears, playfulness, and the joy of kids just being kids. If you have little ones in your life, I cannot recommend these highly enough . . Did you have any fav picture books this year? . . . #maeamongthestars #christianrobinson #julianisamermaid #thyraheder #picturebooks #kidsbookstagram #weneeddiversebooks

What does your bookshelf say about you? When ever I meet someone new and I get invited to their house I check three things: Their bookshelf, their fridge and their medicine cabinet! Call me nosy but those three things will tell you so much more about the person than anything else. 🤷🏾‍♀️ . . Who else looks at those things when they go to a new house?? 🙋🏾‍♀️. ** Disclaimer: been getting messages so I have to say this: I don’t literally go around ppl home snooping! 🤣. I just mean I pay attention to these things. Please don’t dis-invite me! ** . . . Anyway this my kids “classroom” as they call it. But it’s more the guess room/ office room. I want their bookshelf to reflect the diversity and inclusion I want them to see in the world. . . . . . . . . #bookshelf #muslimbookshelf #selfpublishedauthor #diversityandinclusion #representationmatters #whatyourbookssayaboutyou #ownvoices #diversebooks #blackauthors #muslimchildrensbooks #muslimauthors #muslimah #thedayyoubegin #maeamongthestars #selfpublished #selfpublishing #diversechildrensbooks #readdiversebooks #blackmuslims #selflove #childrenbookauthor #raisingreaders #bookworm

I got so many messages in response to my stories-rant about gendered Halloween costumes, I wanted to share with you the story of meeting this young lady. We were out on our little town’s trick-or-treat event, when I saw this girl wearing the same astronaut suit as Ellis. She was just as excited as I was about it (😅), and immediately started asking questions about Ellis & her costume, and telling us about hers. Her name is Haley, and she’s 10 years old, and she wants to be an Astro-physicist when she grows up. She was dressed as Christa McAuliffe, one of the seven crew members that died on the Challenger in 1986 (more than 20 years before Haley was born). She went on to tell me a little about what happened on the Challenger, and about Christa. I told her that Ellis’ costume was inspired by Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African American woman to go to space (& the beautiful children’s book our friend @rodaworld wrote about Mae’s story). Haley’s passion & enthusiasm about a female scientist she looks up to was so inspiring for me. I’ll be sharing some wonderful resources & companies working to combat children’s gender bias in my stories today (including a link to Mae Jemison’s story) if you’re interested. // #amypoehlersmartgirls #femalescientist #nomoreprincesses #genderbias #ellisflannery #maeamongthestars #cakeletcostumes
Don’t let others confine your imagination to their own self imposed limitations. You determine your ceiling... or if you even elect to have one. #drmaejemison #maeamongthestars #limitlessimagination #noceilings #liveamongthestars #claimyourpower #claimyourspace #maejemison
We're exploring our dreams. The girls said they want to be singing pediatricians, moms or candy store owners. "Mae Among the Stars" showed them that they can be whatever they want, even astronauts.  #childrenspicturebooks, #children, #picturebooks, #maeamongthestars, #diversebooks

We recently picked up #maeamongthestars from the library, and found out that today is #maejemison’s birthday! Naomi insisted that we needed to celebrate. Domi built a space station and we all drew space pictures. Happy birthday, Dr. Jemison!

My nephew has a space-themed bedroom (my dad even built him a rocket ship bookcase!) so for his 3rd birthday I got him these books about #space (tap for author/illustrator info)— MAE AMONG THE STARS, a #biography of #maejemison, is one of my favorite books published this year. For the others, I found a list of #picturebooks compiled by #emilylakdawalla on the @planetarysociety website. It was written in November 2017 and the books (including fiction and nonfiction) are organized by child age. I found it super helpful! Link here: http://www.planetary.org/blogs/emily-lakdawalla/2017/1115-space-books-kids.html
New work with the remarkable @rodaworld, this is but the start.  #maeamongthestars #maejemison
I am so grateful for @rodaworld & for this journey we have embarked on. The power of a book. #maejemison #maeamongthestars #newyork #newwork #filmmaker #documentary
This lovely book is nominated for Talk👋 and it is inspired by the life of Mae Jemison, the first African American woman to travel in space. It shows us what life might have been like for little Mae as she dreams big, reaches for the stars and shares her dreams with others! 💫🌎🌛@rodaworld @stasiaburrington #maeamongthestars #clelbellawards #talk #rodaahmed #stasiaburrington
We are loving this book inspired by the story of Mae Jemison, the first African American woman in Space! Check it out and some of our space items!!! #maeamongthestars #maejemison #spacetravel #museumofflightstore #gifts #space #booklovers
“You must always repeat to yourself: If I can dream it, if I can believe in it, and if I work hard for it, anything is possible.” - Mae Among the Stars . It wasn’t until Milani came along that I started paying more attention to the moon. You see she is absolutely in love with the moon and looks for it during our night time drives to pick up her big brothers or our night time walks. She counts the stars and says the moon is playing peek a boo when she can’t find it. . So, it was only natural that I start looking for space clothing and books for her. We adore this book by @rodaworld inspired by the story of Mae Jamison, the first African American woman in space and it has become one of Milani’s must read books morning, noon, or night.👩🏾‍🚀🌙⭐️ . . . #rodaworld #maejamison #maeamongthestars #worldspaceweek #worldspaceweek2018 #representationmatters #mirrorsandwindows #childhoodbooks #booksforkids #readingtime #mustreadbooks #childhoodreading #readingislife #readingisfundamental #frobabies #kiddycurls
