The exceptional Little People, BIG DREAMS series prides itself on providing child-friendly biographies of renowned public figures and celebrities. All of these books share the childhoods of the person being highlighted, as well as the dreams they has as children. An interesting thing about this series is that they are all illustrated by different illustrators, yet they all have the same quirky feel with emotions showing in the faces. I really enjoy this series and love sharing them with my grandson. He enjoys learning about the different people, especially if he can identify with them in some way. This series is one that I recommend to parents, teachers, schools and public libraries. They are excellent to use as a starting point to teach about biographies, as well as to instill an interest in learning about famous people who were once children, just like them. Each of these books was provided to me by the publisher upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.Continue reading “Saturday Morning for Kids: Little People, Big Dreams, 5 Mini-Reviews”
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”

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”
