The instant New York Times bestseller!
Featuring the true stories of 35 women creators, ranging from writers to inventors, artists to scientists, Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World inspires as it educates. Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor/inventor Hedy Lamarr, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Maya Deren, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. Some names are known, some are not, but all of the women had a lasting effect on the fields they worked in.
The charming, information-filled full-color spreads show the Dreamers as both accessible and aspirational so readers know they, too, can grow up to do something amazing.
They loved the pictures and were engaged in reading a few of the stories at a time. What a fun glimpse into the worlds of these women and girls who have impacted their culture in ways my girls could not have yet imagined. I think the combination of whimsical illustrations and in-depth information makes this book fun for all ages! Younger girls will adore paging through the illustrations and gleaning bits of inspiration from the stories. Older girls will be able to engage more and hopefully relate to one fascinating woman after the next. -Emily, mom to three girls ages 7, 5, and 3, Temecula, CA
