This book is so beautiful, in so many ways. The author has adorable illustrations on every page, and the mini biographies of these amazing women are just enough to pique your curiosity. Thankfully, she's added lots of different kind of resources at the back - I found myself looking in to quite a few of these remarkable stories. HIGHLY recommend for females of all ages - Inspirational.

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World was beautifully written with amazing illustrations! It was only after starting this post that I realized all of the women have their eyes closed. I wonder if there's a reason or significance for that? Regardless, the illustrations really complemented the

I thought this book was so cute! I really enjoyed reading small samples of the stories each women had to tell. I loved how this focused on women in math, science, dance, and art. I think it is important for young girls to start believing in themselves and reach for their biggest dreams. When I read this I kept thinking about my two young nieces (5 and 4) and their personalities and their dreams and passions well for this moment. I also love how we have women from all around the world and from di ...more

A perfect companion piece to her first book, "Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History." The book is full of the stories of women around the world, whose contributions include art, math, science, astronomy, dance, costume design, computer programming, space exploration and more. I had not heard of many of the women included in this book; yet the contributions of the women in this book make the world what it is today.

This book shines a light on women who may not be known for their contributions to the world. Highlighting the importance of women in society encourages other little leaders do that same thing! This book explores women or all color.
It's so important to teach young people about the less acknowledged, females who had an impact on the way we live our everyday lives! the illustrations are kid friendly and colorful. The sentences are short and make these people accessible to the really young.
