Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This was a wonderful and thoroughly enjoyable educational read! This children's nonfiction picture book focuses on sharing 50 visionary women who excelled in their careers. Some are well known, some not so much, but each has explored, discovered, or created something that has changed the history of the world. There are up to 50 women featured in this book, each with plenty of information about their lives, careers, and how they persevered and overcame. Each woman is beautifully illustrated with little hints of what their lives revolved around, whether it be an artist with her palette and brushes or an inventor standing proudly with their creation. Each illustration shows bits of these women's culture, career, or environment in either their clothing or background and it's quite spectacular how much is covered on each page. I especially enjoyed that there are resources for further reading, watching, and listening at the back of the book. They invite you to see the work of the creators, hear the music, read the books, or watch the movies. There's lots of websites listed for further research and even a glossary to help out with those difficult concepts and creations; anything from aesthetics to atoms to radioactivity to surrealism. Both adults and children alike are sure to learn something from or be inspired by this wonderful collection of incredible women!
