New in the critically acclaimed Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of David Bowie, the starman who dazzled audiences with his music. 

As a child, young David had a head full of songs and ideas. He was inspired by the pop and mod scenes in Britain to pick up the saxophone. After earning his stripes in some of the coolest bands in London, David splashed onto the solo scene. His songwriting talent and musical skill made him one of rock and roll’s all-time greatest artists. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the musician’s life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a best-selling series of books and educational games that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.

This empowering series offers inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats. The board books are told in simple sentences, perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers. The hardcover versions present expanded stories for beginning readers. Boxed gift sets allow you to collect a selection of the books by theme.

SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW

While this children’s book, David Bowie (Little People, BIG DREAMS), written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Ana Albero, is short, it is big on message, and rightly so as the subject is David Bowie.

This brightly colored biography tells about David Bowie’s dreams and how he intended to do big things and his attraction to music. The wonderful message is that not only should you follow your dreams but be yourself as you do so.

I think this would be a great read for children who will learn about Bowie and may also feel inspired to follow their own big dreams.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
