The Little People, Big Dream series chronicles the lives of youngsters who grew up to become the inspiring people we learn about today. The range spans from artists to scientists to everything in between. Amelia Earhart, someone I admired as a child, was the perfect person to begin with as an introduction to the series.
Amelia’s story begins as a young girl who dreams of being able to fly like a bird. She uses her arms as wings in delightfully rendered illustrations. Her dream seemingly becomes more in her reach when she attends her first air show. Her first ride in an airplane solidified her future and helped her become the person we read about now and later throughout the book.
This book is thoughtfully crafted. Text stands out easily on the page and is paired with whimsical illustrations. I look forward to purchasing other titles in the Little People, Big Dream series for my niece – particularly the Frida Kahlo and Maya Angelou books. I would highly recommend this particular part of the series to any parent eager to nurture the “dream big” mentality in their little ones.
