SKU: B040613

'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. 

From an early age Maria Montessori challenged the norm, studying science at an all-boys school. As an adult, she became the first female doctor in her country, specialising in the care of children. She went on to make important discoveries that completely changed the course of traditional education, eating up Montessori schools around the world. This inspiring story of the revolutionary doctor’s life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Raquel Martin.

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-
