This book is part of the “Little People, BIG DREAMS” series and is a board book for younger kids to learn the story of Stephen Hawking. This is a pretty cool way to teach kids about dreaming big – “No matter how difficult life may seem there is always something you can succeed at” is a great message for children – and anyone, really!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
