This week’s children’s book review is a book from the Little People, BIG DREAMS series, and is all about Gloria Steinem. The book can be purchased on Amazon.
In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the incredible life of Gloria Steinem, the world’s most famous feminist.
Gloria realised from a young age that the women were treated differently than men, and that wasn’t fair. Beginning her career as a journalist, her witty and honest articles challenged readers to see the world through her eyes. Following in the footsteps of her suffragist grandmother, she became passionate about feminism and grassroots activism.
There was so much work to be done, and Gloria kept working – she became a passionate leader in the women’s liberation movement and dedicated her life to brining about change. A spokesperson for an entire generation, to this day Gloria inspires us to keep working for a fairer society – for everyone.
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 this amazing feminist’s life.
Being a parent, I want my daughter to know about people that have done amazing things. It’s so important to share other people’s experiences, journeys and achievements so that our children know that they really can do anything they want. Something I especially want Erin to know is about women and that there shouldn’t be any boundaries for what they can do.
In our first book in the Little People, BIG DREAMS we got to learn about Gloria Steinem and what she did. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Gloria Steinem so even I was looking forward to learning about her with Erin.
Gloria Steinem realised at a young age that boys and girls were treated differently and this meant things like her mother having to give up her own dream. What a thing for a young girl to have to think about. I can’t imagine Erin thinking that I couldn’t do my job just because I’m a woman.
This book shows Gloria Steinem realising different things about the world around her but doing something about changing that. Not only did she realise her mother’s dream of being a journalist but Steinem went undercover for articles, helped to start an organisation that supported women in politics and started a female magazine that had over 20,000 letters from readers in only a few weeks.
Gloria Steinem’s story is told in a really bright and colourful way, making it easy for children to understand. The pages are fun and it’s nice to talk about the images whilst reading the book. Also, at the end of the book there is a timeline of Gloria Steinem’s life and the things she achieved.
