about

The Girl Who Could Dance in Outer Space is the second book in The Girls Who Could Series. It tells the tale of young Mae Jemison, the creative girl who became a doctor, an engineer, a dancer, and an astronaut. Mae Jemison teaches us that art and science are natural expressions of creativity and imagination. Nurture them both, and go where your dreams take you! The Girls Who Could is a fun, colorful series of stories about real women who have made a difference in the world through inspired action. By giving young girls examples of people who have done big, amazing things, children grow up with a template of achievement upon which to grow and expand their own dreams and goals. Praise for The Girl Who Could Talk to Computers: "Love love love this book! It is perfect for my small neice, who is always building and doing puzzles -- I can't wait for more books from this authors for kids." "This book is a huge hit at home with at my toy store. Kids love the simple, bright pictures. Grown-ups love the intelligently written rhymes that get across the main message and accomplishments of Grace Hopper's innovative life, without boring or confusing the children. There are sixteen, 4-line stanzas, each accompanied by an illustration. The book is perfect for young kids that are just starting to read, and I really like how it is geared towards inspiring girls, yet the drawings and story is not pink and frilly, so it can just as easily be read to boys, too. The main message of the book is that when you use your head "nothing's impossible, you can do it, you bet!""
