Think Big, Little One Written and Illustrated by Vashti Harrison (2019) – board book
This adorable board book adaption of Harrison’s Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World is the perfect introduction to inspire your little one to think big! Featuring 18 diverse women who were trailblazers in their respective fields, this is sure to be a go-to source for inspiration and female empowerment. From Qing Dynasty scientist Wang Zhenyi, to the modern day British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid, we love that Harrison highlighted so many diverse ethnic backgrounds and career paths, spanning centuries of female history! It makes such a special addition to any children’s library. And, as always, Harrison’s illustrations are so endearing.
Take-away message: It’s in the title: “Think big, little one.” It’s never too early to plant the seeds of having high ambitions!
