Audrey Hepburn is from The Little People, Big Dreams series. This series is based on the lives of inspirational women who have changed the world. This is the story of Audrey Hepburn how she had a dream as a little girl and was determined to fulfil it. Audrey lived through war and through illness but that didn't stop her. She eventually became an actress playing a variety of different roles. When she was older she remembered her childhood and wanted to help other children and gave back. Not only was she a famous actress but a style icon and humanitarian! The book has been beautifully put together and the illustrations are fantastic. The story has been put together in a way that they are both meaningful but accessible to children across a variety of ages. I think these books would be beneficial both at home and in school as this book shows how women changed the world and how to show kindness and compassion.
