The Little People, Big Dreams series is one that I love and continue to recommend to teachers, schools, libraries and parents.

Mini-Reviews: Biographies for Children, #BookReviews

It is no secret that as a retired teacher and teacher-librarian, a parent and grandparent, I love this series. I read these four to my seven year old grandson and he really enjoyed them. He liked learning about these famous people who did great things, but started as children to follow their dreams. We talked a lot about what he could do to pursue his dreams while still young. All of these books were provided by the publisherΒ through Netgalley. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
