Excerpt from book:
"Look at tiny Imani! She’s no higher than a lion cub’s knee!"
"Careful, Imani! Don’t let the meerkats stomp on your head!"
"Mini Imani! You’ll never accomplish anything!"
Day in and day out, the children teased, and Imani began to believe.
Every night, Imani headed home sad and ashamed for Mama to lift her spirits with stories. This night, Mama told her of Olapa, goddess of the moon, who fought great battles.
Imani is a young Maasi girl with a loving mother and a desire to do something great. When she decides she wants to touch the moon, she works hard to reach her goal, even in the face of teasing from the naysayers around her.
