REVIEW: Simone de Beauvoir (Little People, Big Dreams), Mª Isabel Sánchez Vegara

Monday, 15 October 2018

New in the Little People, Big Dreams series, discover the incredible life of Simone de Beauvoir, the great French philosopher, in this true story of her life. 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!
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, Simone de Beauvoir, as a pioneer of early feminism and the author of the book that has gone on to form the foundation of contemporary feminist thought, is someone who children everywhere, especially young girls, need to be aware of. She was a trailblazer, a pioneer, a groundbreaker. No matter what we think of her views and her actions now, she was one of the first people to push women down towards a path of realisation, and who made the very idea of having dreams as a female, slightly more plausible. 
Read it for your children, read it for yourself - just read it and be inspired.
