REVIEW: Jane Goodall (Little People, Big Dreams), Mª Isabel Sánchez Vegara

Friday, 24 August 2018

New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the amazing life of Jane Goodall, the world expert on chimpanzees, in this true story of her life. When Jane was little, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee called "Jubilee" which sparked her early love of animals. As an adult, Jane traveled to Tanzania to study chimpanzees in a new way – by living with them in their habitat. This is how Jane made many discoveries that people had missed. With stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, this empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. From designers and artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. These books make the lives of these role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world!

Oh wow. Oh wow, oh wow, oh wow.
In this series, María Isabel Sánchez Vegara charts the lives of incredible women throughout history from their start as just young children with big dreams, to people who changed the world. Honestly, it is wonderful - we need to show children that they can follow in these people’s footsteps; that they can reach for the stars and become whoever they want to be. And, Jane Goodall is someone that children everywhere need to be talking about. A disproportionate amount of young women are not seeing Goodall’s as viable options, and we need to show them that this amazing woman did it, so they can too! I mean, what little kid doesn’t love animals and wants to be a zookeeper? So where down the line are they discourage out of a career with them? Goodall’s story will show them that, if they work hard enough, childhood dreams don’t have to be pushed aside.
Read it for your children, read it for yourself - just read it and be inspired.
