The delightful biography series Little People, Big Dreams offers children a simple introduction to famous artists, scientists, athletes and others.
Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara, the creator of the series, wanted to show children that future accomplishments often start with childhood dreams. Each book in the series shares a snapshot of the famous person’s childhood, highlighting a challenge that influenced their life.
With over 100 titles to explore, featuring an array of subjects, including Coco Chanel, Charles Darwin, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Frida Kahlo, Prince and Wilma Rudolph, it is easy to find intriguing titles.
Unique folk art illustrations from international artists give the series a colorful visual appeal.
