Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "First published in Spain, the Little People, Big Dreams series spotlights notable women. Each short, simply written biography begins in girlhood, conveys the adult's significant achievements, and ends with a bit of inspiration. The striking artwork illustrating each text has a strong graphic look, stylized in Amelia Earhart and folk-art inspired in Maya Angelou. Amelia Earhart tells of young Amelia's fascination with flight. After learning to fly, she became famous as the first woman airplane passenger to cross the Atlantic. Later, she piloted a transatlantic flight on her own. The story concludes with a vaguely worded account of the round-the-world flight, from which she never returned, and an awkwardly phrased platitude likely a poor translation of the original. Each book concludes with a few photos, a brief time line, and a biographical summary for older readers. Although both books are attractive, the relative scarcity of books on Angelou makes this a particularly good choice.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2016 Booklist"
