Today I am sharing three books from the Little People, Big Dreams series. I love this series and recommend as often as I can. I can’t praise this series enough. If you have the opportunity, check out these books, or better yet, check out the series and recommend it to your local library or school library or buy them for the children in your life. I read these three books with my seven year old grandson. He enjoyed them and kept asking if these were stories or real people. He was quite impressed with what they had done. He was upset when we read about Malala being shot, but after some discussion, we were able to move on. He was also very interested in the actual photos at the back of the books, but didn’t really care about the timeline, he is only seven. I received these books from the publisher upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own.Continue reading “Children’s Non-Fiction #BookReviews, Little People, Big Dreams series”

I absolutely love the Little People, Big Dreams series. This series features child friendly, quirky illustrated biographies. The subjects come from a variety of ethnicities, walks of life and ages.

The Little People, Big Dreams series is one that I love and continue to recommend to teachers, schools, libraries and parents. There are over 50 books in this series highlighting people from all walks of life. They showcase how they dreamed about their futures and what they wanted them to look like, then with hard work and perseverance, they have all succeeded. All these books were provided through Netgalley. The ratings and comments shared are my own.Continue reading “Three Child Friendly Biographies: John Lennon, Captain Tom Moore, Elton John #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 publisher through Netgalley. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
I am always on the lookout for good non-fiction for children. My grandson loves non-fiction books because he likes to learn things, (his words, not mine). Although I have not read these books to him yet, I do plan on getting many of this series for him for his upcoming birthday. All but two of these books come from the Little People, Big Dreams series. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book upon request. The rating, ideas and opinions shared are my own. Continue reading “Children’s Biographies – Mini Reviews”
All of these books are biographies for Children. Several are from the wonderful Little People, Big Dreams series and two are from a new series I came across about Women in Stem. These books were all provided through Netgalley. The ratings, ideas and opinions shared are my own.
Martin Luther King Jr (#41 Little People, Big Dreams) by Mª Isabel Sánchez Vegara
Expected publication: February 4th 2020 by Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
These Non-Fiction books are geared to children ages 8 and up in my opinion, except for one. They are all well written with great illustrations. If I shared the book with my grandchildren, their comments and reactions are shared in the reviews. Definitely great additions to libraries, home, public and school. All were requested by me to read, and review. Ratings, ideas and opinions are my own.
