Gloria Steinem - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with Gloria Steinem, one of the most iconic feminists in the world.
Gloria realised from a young age that the general attitude towards women was different to the way people behaved towards men. After spending some time abroad, she became passionate about grassroot activism. This manifested into her work with the women’s liberation movement and even the articles she wrote as a journalist. Gloria has dedicated her life to women’s rights.
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 - Emmeline Pankhurst, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo and many others.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Lucilla Perini.
