Little People, Big Dreams Series

by
  • (246 reviews)

    Little People, Big Dreams is a wonderful illustrated series by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, that explores the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

    We love these books for the empowering message for children of all ages – no matter who you are, or where you come from, you can achieve amazing things.

    The Little People books are told as a story, with a section containing facts, photos and a timeline at the back, plus striking illustations from more than 70 different artists. The hardback books are great for emerging readers 5+ and the board books are perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers.

    With over 50 books published so far, and more coming this year, there are so many inspiring people to read about, whatever your child’s interest and background. From well-known names like Ernest Shackleton, Greta Thunberg and Malala, to lesser-known heroes and heroines like Evonne Goolagong, the indigenous Australian tennis player and Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid. Read about scientists, entertainers, athletes, eco-warriors, artists, writers and trailblazers of all races, genders and backgrounds. 

    These books are the perfect way to inspire the next generation to dream big!
