The Little People, Big Dreams books are at it again, this time with a book about King Charles. (It’s still kind of weird to be typing that!) I hadn’t realized that he was the first royal to earn a degree after spending some time in boarding school. He also started defending the environment before global warming was a well known issue. In fact, the items I knew the most about him (married to Diana, father to William and Harry) were just glossed over on a page or two. It focused a lot more in information I didn’t really know about him, which was great! I also love the illustrations in this book and how they’re written as easy reads and geared towards children.
I received a free e-copy of this book from NetGalley in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
From the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of King Charles.
Little Charles always knew that, one day, he would have a big job to do. As the son of Queen Elizabeth II, he was a prince, and in the future, he was to inherit the throne of the United Kingdom.
As a young man, he developed a passion for one cause: the environment. Charles recognized that plastics and pollutants were causing harm to Earth, and as the Prince of Wales, he spent all his efforts championing climate justice and sustainability.
As a member of the Royal Family, Charles used his power to build important organizations such as The Prince’s Trust, a charity that works to improve the lives of young people across the UK.
And in 2022, when he became King, he pledged that he would spend the rest of his life serving his people with loyalty, respect, and love.
This inspiring 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 royal’s life, from little prince to grown-up king.
