Imani may be the smallest child in her Maasai village, but she is big in heart. The more she hears the ancient stories of her people, the more she is inspired to believe that she can touch the moon, like Olapa, the moon goddess of Maasai mythology. Although the other children and the talking animals discourage her, Imani continues her endeavor. This beautiful story of a little girl who believed will inspire young readers to reach for their own moons.
