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+.
