Little People, Big Dreams- Simone de Beauvoir

£9.99
SKU: B036153

‘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 Simone de Beauvoir was a little girl, her father would proudly boast that she had the brain of a man- whatever that meant. But later, after years of studying, Simone would write a book that challenged the role of women in society, sending shock waves around the world. This incredible story of the mother of feminism’s life features a facts and photos section at the back.'

Illustrated by Christine Roussey. 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, Muhammed 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.”
