I found the book to be inspiring and enjoyable to read. However, I found the book to focus a lot on women who had an impact on the arts and creative fields. I would have loved to read more about women who made an impact in the STEM field. Overall, a good book for young girls to let them know everything is possible. And, I found it a good read for any adult who needs a bit of inspiration in their life.

    Absolutely wonderful. Straightforward, interesting, educational. A tiny book filled with unbelievable and remarkable stories. Each mini-biography is accompanied by an adorable illustrated portrait. Inspiring in every way.

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 information being shared about each woman. Like with the other book, most of these woman were unfamiliar. I think I actually preferred not knowing anyone, because it made for an even more enjoyable learning experience. This one is meant for younger readers, which is why I think my son paid closer attention to this one. Vashti Harrison was able to condense the information about each individual woman and present it in a way that was both informative and interesting.I believe books like this are really important, and I'm happy that they are going to be out in the world. I want my children to know that they have the potential and the ability to do great things, and that their gender doesn't matter. It's books like this that give me hope for a better future for my children.Originally posted at Do You Dog-ear? on November 16, 2018.

About Little Dreamers: About Little Dreamers Author: IMHO: LITTLE DREAMERS Visionary Women Around the World THIS IS SO ADORABLE AND INFORMATIVE. I really do not care for nonfiction in most cases. But this is straightforward, engaging, not condescending, and  a burst of sunshine.The illustrations are adorable, realistic, and the backgrounds are detailed.  It's a good mix of the well known and the obscure. I think it's a good sampling across the world and not US centric. (But I'm USAian so YMMV).Oh, did I mention how there's BONUS mini features of more women in the back? This is followed by further reading, a source list, and a glossary.I was disappointed there was only like one Native/Indigenous woman featured. So I want to drop a link to a Wiki list for perusal. And I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the leap forward from the midterm elections! (And mention Connie Walker from Canada's CBC with her kickass podcast Missing & Murdered)That one minor sore spot of mine aside, this book is fantastic. Everyone should read it and own it. Forget the photo coffee table books, leave Little Dreamers books out instead.  Giveaway: 3 winners will receive a finished copy of LITTLE DREAMERS: VISIONARY WOMEN AROUND THE WORLD, US Only.a Rafflecopter giveaway Tour Schedule: This review was originally posted on The Layaway Dragon
