My 10-year-old daughter, Norah, was looking forward to reading this book together when she heard about it.
Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around The World by Vashti Harrison celebrates the contributions of women from all over the globe. Untold stories of women in business, art, literature, architecture, and science reveals the important role that women have played throughout various societies around the world. Thirty-six women were featured in this beautifully illustrated book from well-known names like Marie Curie, Frida Kahlo, Katherine Dunham, Calypso Rose, and the recently deceased Toni Morrison. Also, there were lesser known women featured like the Mexican Dancer/Choreographer Amalia Hernandez, the Austrian Actress and Inventor Hedy Lamarr, and the Chinese Molecular Biologist Flossie Wong-Staal that intrigued my daughter as we read through the book.
Harrison has put together another wonderful book and great companion to Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History. Little Dreamers is suited for all children from 2nd to 6th grade and I really appreciate the diversity that Harrison brought to this book. Highly recommended!
