David Attenborough - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the broadcaster, writer and naturalist David Attenborough.
Little David grew up in Leicester on the campus of a university, where his father was a professor. As a child, he spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. When he was old enough to go to university, he studied science and zoology - but what he wanted most of all was to be close to the animals he was studying. So, he started working in television, visiting animals in their natural habitats and telling the world the untold stories of these animals.
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 - Jane Goodall, Amelia Earhart, Emmeline Pankhurst, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Mikyo Noh.
