Emmeline Pankhurst - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This colour illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with Emmeline Pankhurst.
It tells how Emmeline became an inspiring women's rights activist, changing the world for future generations. As a child, Emmeline was shocked at the inequality of men and women that she saw all around her. When she grew up, she never stopped fighting for women to get the vote, inspiring other women to demonstrate, take a stand and protest. At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. Also in this series - Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Lisbeth Kaiser and illustrated by Ana Sanfelippo.
