Description

Junior Magazine: "Empowering books EVERY child should read."

New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, meet an inspiring women's rights activist who changed the world for future generations of women. As a child, Emmeline Pankhurst was shocked at the inequality of men and women that she saw all around her. When she grew up, she never stopped fighting for women to get the vote, inspiring other women to demonstrate, go on hunger strike and protest for the cause. With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. From designers and artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!

Review quote

'Sumptuously illustrated hardbacks, they take the life stories of famous women in history and retell them in a child-friendly way' * Daily Mail * "One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams." * Toronto Star * "A QUIRKY kids biography series" * The Voice * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * 'If I had to pick a favourite series of children's picture books, Little People, Big Dreams would definitely be up there... Educational, inspiring and empowering for young girls, we plan to collect the entire set.' * Bambino Goodies * 'A gorgeously designed series of books about achieving great things after dreaming big as a child. This simply told tale of the suffragettes opens up a world of whys about how the world used to be... Packed with great, easy-to-read facts at the back for avid minds' * Smallish * 'Empowering books EVERY child should read... Yes they are all women but these stories have captured both boys and girls... A must for every child's bookshelf.' * Junior Magazine * "Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers." * The Huffington Post * 'These books are designed with admirable simplicity... the difficult, often traumatic detail of an entire life is distilled with tremendous skill into its essence; the result is age-appropriate for yet unpatronising to five-year-olds, and hums with a sense of transgressive inspiration' * The Times Literary Supplement * "The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" * Irish Times *
