Little People Big Dreams Book Covers

Product description


“The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well… The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity” ―Irish Times

'These books are designed with admirable simplicity… the difficult, often traumatic detail of an entire life is distilled with tremendous skill into its essence; the result is age-appropriate for yet unpatronising to five-year-olds, and hums with a sense of transgressive inspiration’
The Times Literary Supplement

'One of a series of illustrated biographies designed for young readers, this describes naturalist David Attenborough’s life-long passion for and concern about looking after the natural world.’Bishop’s Stortford Independent

'Strikingly illustrated, they’re superb first biographies for younger readers.’ 
Huffington Post

"We were utterly charmed by this stylish book."―
The Evening Standard

¡Hola! My name is Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara and I’m a writer and creative director from Barcelona. When I was a little girl, I used to read books under the covers with a flashlight once my mom had turned the light off. I always wanted to be a writer… but when I grew up, I ended up in advertising. It was a lot of fun though; I loved working with directors, photographers, designers, and I also wrote scripts, documentaries and texts for all kind of things.

Then, I decided to self-publish a book that had been in my mind for a long time. One day, one thousand copies of the book arrived at my home – I had no idea what I was going to do with them! I opened a little online shop, offered them to some pretty stores in my neighborhood and, one by one, I sold them all. Soon, publishing houses started to approach me to write books, but I was working on another idea of my own: a series about little people with BIG dreams.

My son absolutely adored the story of David Attenborough. The quality of the book is excellent,
The pages feel like really nice paper. The illustrations are just mesmerisingly beautiful.

Superb storyline very informative.

Little David Attenborough grew up in Leicester on the campus of a university, where his father was a professor. As a child, he spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology—but what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying. So, he started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats, and telling the world the untold stories of these animals. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the broadcaster's life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a best-selling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

This empowering series offers inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats. The board books are told in simple sentences, perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers. The hardcover versions present expanded stories for beginning readers. Boxed gift sets allow you to collect a selection of the books by theme. Paper dolls, learning cards, matching games, and other fun learning tools provide even more ways to make the lives of these role models accessible to children.

Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!
