Recensioner

I love Mae Jemison, and so I was very excited about this book. The illustrations are beautiful, and dreamy, setting the tone of the book and it's message of following your dream. The writing was disappointing and the focus of a young girls dream rather than a young woman's hard work was a let down.

Positive story of an extraordinary little girl named Etta who has a goal (performing in her school's talent show) and the perfect plans to reach that goal.

The colorful illustrations represent a really *cute* Etta, her home, family and diverse neighborhood.

Etta Extraordinaire reminds me of Fancy Nancy.

Another famous Etta, Etta Moten Barnett, whom I had never known about (but I do now after looking her up!) is mentioned in the story.
