L M Montgomery - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the author who created Anne of Green Gables.
Lucy Maud Montgomery lost her mother when she was very young. She found comfort in reading, writing and her imagination. When Maud grew up she wrote about the childhood she wished she had had, and created one of the best loved characters of all time - Anne Shirley.
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 - Agatha Christie, Emmeline Pankhurst, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Anuska Allepuz.
