I absolutely adore the Little People, Big Dreams series, this particular one by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara and illustrated by Asun Amar, for children so much. They are brilliant educational and motivational tools that can be used to introduce young readers to some of the most international and impressive people. Even I have learned a great deal from reading some of these exceptional novels about these extraordinary people. And one of those people I recently learned about was young Zaha Hadid, a woman from Iraq who grew into a world-famous architect.
This book is gorgeously illustrated, following a very similar style to all of the other books I’ve read that are a part of this series. It’s simple, colorful, to the point, and excellent for the typical audience. As usual, I am a huge fan. Even better, the book also features extended information about Zaha Hadid at the end.
An overview of Zaha Hadid’s life, beginning from her childhood and stretching through into her adulthood accomplishments is the center focus for this book. We are taken on a short journey with her. We learn of the struggles she has faced and how she has turned her life into one of major and impressive success. Hadid is definitely a woman for young girls to look up to and I’m so thrilled that this book gives them an opportunity to do so.
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
