Description

In this book from the highly acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Rosa Parks, the 'Mother of the Freedom Movement.'

Rosa Parks grew up in Alabama, where she learned to stand up for herself at an early age. Rosa went on to become a civil rights activist. In 1955, she refused to give up her seat to a white man on a segregated bus, sparking the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Her courageous decision had a huge impact on civil rights, eventually leading to the end of segregation on public transport. She never stopped working for equal rights. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the activist's life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games that explore 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.

This empowering series offers inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats. The board books are told in simple sentences, perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers. The hardback versions present expanded stories for beginning readers. Boxed gift sets allow you to collect a selection of the books by theme. Paper dolls, learning cards, matching games and other fun learning tools provide even more ways to make the lives of these role models accessible to children.

Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!

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 * "A QUIRKY kids biography series" * The Voice * "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 * '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 * "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 * "Brilliantly accessible and inspiring" * Rhino Reads * '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 * 'A gorgeously designed series of books about achieving great things after dreaming big as a child... Packed with great, easy-to-read facts at the back for avid minds' * Smallish * '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 * 'Strikingly illustrated, they're superb first biographies for younger readers.' * Huffington Post * 'a beautiful picture book' * Stylist *
