Little People, Big Dreams- Frida Kahlo

£9.99
SKU: B022461

‘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 Frida Kahlo was a teenager, a terrible road accident changed her life forever. Unable to walk, she began painting from her bed. Her self-portraits, which show her pain and grief but also her passion for life and instinct for survival, have made her one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century. This inspiring story of her life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Gee Fan Eng. 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-
