"One children's books series trying to fight back... by telling the inspiring stories of women who overcame adversity and made history by pursuing their childhood dreams." - Toronto Star
"We're obsessed with the 'Little People, Big Dreams' series" - MotherMag
"packs an emotional punch" - Entertainment Weekly
"The kind of books that adults will covet and collect as well... The language and structure is simple enough for young readers, while a biographical timeline at the end of each book offers greater historical complexity" - Irish Times
"Informative text...smartly illustrated... Another batch of successful instalments in the series" - School Library Journal SLJ
