Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Young readers will find inspiring stories of individuality and courage in the latest installments of the Little People, Big Dreams series (4 new titles). As always, these child-friendly biographies utilize brief, approachable text and inviting artwork to tell of the childhoods and accomplishments of admirable figures in history or living today. Readers will easily become absorbed in Dolly Parton's folk-art-style spreads, which relay the petite singer-songwriter's journey from performing on local radio as a kid to becoming a country music powerhouse. At times, the books make superlative statements that would be challenging to prove Bowie was the most unique star that ever fell to earth. ; Parton is the most respected country performer of all time. though the sentiments ring true. All volumes end with a two-page spread featuring a photo-illustrated time line and more detailed information on the featured individual. A light, endearing series.--Julia Smith Copyright 2010 Booklist"
