Emmeline Pankhurst: My First Emmeline Pankhurst

My First Emmeline Pankhurst is a simplified version of the Emmeline Pankhurst book in the Little People, Big Dreams series. This series of young reader books provides short illustrated biographies for famous people around the world from current and past history. They're all really well done and I've enjoyed (and recommended) all I've reviewed on the blog.

Worth noting: There are two versions of this book.  The young reader version was released in 2017.  This boardbook edition has much more simplified text and was released 5th Feb 2019. The entire series is published by Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint.

The art by Ana Sanfelippo is appealingly naive and simple and supports and illustrates the story very well.  I'm impressed with Quarto's expertise in finding and presenting the artists of this series to a new audience.

Really well done series and this entry is a worthy addition.

Would make a superlative reading circle selection for classroom, library read-along, bedtime story, or similar.  I personally recommend the entire series as good choices for school/classroom libraries.

Five stars. 

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
