The Little People, Big Dreams books have sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide, and the series continues to grow and expand, introducing children around the world to artists, trailblazers, and dreamers who each made a big impact in the world around them.

Storyhouse library is home to a wonderful selection of the best-selling biography series for kids by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara.

Discover 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. Told as a story, with a facts and photos section at the back.

In this Storyhouse Women event, members of the library team and Storyhouse Young Leaders will read aloud some of the best stories from the collection.

Vote for which Incredible Women stories you want to hear at these events.
