Now more than ever we need to empower our girls and young women. We need to show them examples of women who have made a difference, who have stormed their way through glass ceilings. Because these women are so often erased from history, we need to work twice as hard to highlight their achievements. And that is why books like the Little People, Big Dreams series (Frances Lincoln Children’s Books) are so important.
These books feature trailblazing women as children, showing that no matter who you are or where you start in life, you can fulfil your dreams and achieve great things. They are brilliantly accessible and inspiring and the perfect way to start armouring the future generation of Nasty Women. I love the way they celebrate difference and show children that your uniqueness is your strength.
Each book includes a fact section and a list of further reading. I particularly like the inclusion of photographs of the women as children, to really show readers where these women came from and how they grew up to be such fantastic, inspirational women. 
These beautiful books really do deserve a place in every school library and classroom. They would work brilliantly with Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World by Kate Pankhurst (Bloomsbury)

What a super series this is.  When my daughter ordered this from the library, I was thrilled she would get an introduction to one of my favourite authors ever!! 

Wonderful illustrations accompany the simple story, with real pictures at the end with a more ‘grown up’ synopsis of Agatha’s life. My daughter is excited to read her first Christie now! Brilliant news!

My daughter chose this book from the library. Agatha Christie is one of my all time favourite authors so was lovely to be able to introduce her to the children. It is a picture book of her life and work. The illustrations are super and the children were eager to read the book themselves. It's a simply wonderful series and my daughter has already asked for other books in the series too. Was good to share this book with my son too.

I read it to Soopa aged 4 aged 4

The Big Dreams series is a fantastic series of books and we are rapidly working our way through all of them. I love that they feature a really wide range of strong and empowering women and love sharing these stories with my daughter. This particular one is about one of my favourite authors. I have loved Agatha Christie since I was a child (they were the next step after Enid Bylton for me) and it was great to have a more modern author (to complement the Jane Austen book) however my only slight reservation about this one is that obviously the subject matter of the books is a bit gruesome. On one page of the book there is a picture of a cemetery. My daughter knows that people are buried in cemeteries and wasn't worried about it but could lead to bigger conversations (not necessarily a bad thing but worth being prepared for).
