Little People, Big Dreams series. I've reviewed a number of these titles and all of them are delightful and exuberant little books which cover the lives of famous cultural, science, arts, and innovative icons while maintaining an age-appropriate level of detail.
Due out 1st Sept 2020 from Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint, it'll be 32 pages and will be available in hardcover format.
Written by Isabel Sánchez Vegara
it's well written in clear accessible language. The gentle and vibrant illustrations were well done. The art by Camila Rosa
is appealing and colorful and supports the story. The
illustrations are bold and simple.
Well written and appealing, I am really enjoying all of these little
books. This one is a worthy addition. I also appreciate that there are
suggestions for further reading in the back of the book with the
timeline of Pele's life.
Four stars. This would make a superlative reading circle book, classroom
library book, or gift. Pele is obviously a supremely gifted athlete, but the book also highlights his accomplishments as an ambassador for equality and his charitable works. This book is a tribute to an icon who still represents the ideals of sportsmanship and brotherhood for so many thousands of people worldwide. It's nice to see him being introduced to a new generation of kids.
