Audrey Hepburn - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the life of Audrey Hepburn.
Some may only know her as an iconic film star, but there is so much more to her story. This book covers the hardship she endured as a child and her early experiences during WW2 and celebrates the UNICEF work she undertook towards the end of her life.
Told in a simple yet engaging fashion, accompanied by stylish quirky illustrations, this book is perfectly pitched for young readers discovering who their heroines are.
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. 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).
Also in this series - Emmeline Pankhurst, Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Amaia Arrazola.
