Mae Among The Stars

Written by Roda Ahmed Illustrated by Stasia Burrington

In our classroom, every theme with space and planets is always successful. The children get very excited and we can keep them engaged. With Mae Among the Stars it was no different. This book teaches three important lessons:

There is nothing wrong with daydreaming.
Dream big and don’t let others tell you it’s not possible.
The classroom new affirmation – “If you can dream it, you can believe it. If you work hard, anything is possible”

At the end of our unit, the classroom was full of dreamers. We have future doctors, teachers, engineers, and of course a few astronauts. Neil, age 5, shared that he wants to attend Harvard to study science and then become an astronaut.
