Little Imani, a young Maasai girl, is the smallest one in her village. The other children make fun of her and tell her she'll never amount to anything. Imani begins to believe them.
At bedtime, Imani's mama tells her traditional stories about the moon goddess Olapa and Anansi the spider. They accomplished what would seem impossible. When Imani decides she wants to touch the moon, she works hard to reach her goal, even though it seems impossible.
Hazel Mitchell's warm and vibrant illustrations take young readers to the plains of Africa, to a place where the animals always have something to say and little girls can touch the moon.
