‘Discover the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

When Amelia Earhart was young, she liked to imagine she could stretch her wings and fly away like a bird. As a grown woman, she set a new female world record for flying up to 14, 000 feet. She also flew across the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans, and eventually undertook the most dangerous mission of all; to fly all the way around the world. This inspiring story of this brave woman features a facts and photos section at the back.’ 

Illustrated by Mariadiamantes. Hardback edition. 

Created initially for her twin nieces, Alba and Claudia, to address the gender gap in children’s inspirational literature, Sánchez Vegara ‘wanted to show Alba and Claudia some real female characters who have the determination to believe in their dreams and make these dreams a reality.’. An internationally bestselling series loved by all (but especially by Radish) which has now grown to include male figures to continue its ‘celebration of uniqueness’, telling the tales of people such as Stephen Hawking, Muhammad Ali and many more...  Our rating? 10/10! Radish LOVES Little People, Big Dreams. Here’s what some other people think-

“One children’s books series trying to fight back… by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams.” 
Toronto Star

 

“Brilliantly accessible and inspiring” 

Rhino Reads

“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

 

Best children’s books for spring - “Strikingly illustrated, they’re superb first biographies for younger readers.”
