I think this series should be in all school and public libraries. All of these books were gifted to me upon request. The ratings and opinions shared are my own.

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 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”

Children’s Non-Fiction Mini-Reviews

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.
