About the Little People, Big Dreams series
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+.
