About the Book.
From The New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History comes the highly anticipated follow-up, LITTLE DREAMERS: Visionary Women Around the World by Vashti Harrison, a beautifully illustrated collectible detailing the lives of female creators around the world.
Featuring the true stories of 40 female creators, ranging from writers to inventors, artists to scientists, LITTLE DREAMERS; Visionary Women Around the World inspires as it educates. Readers will meet trailblazing women like Mary Blair, an American modernist painter who had a major influence on how color was used in early animated films, actor and inventor Hedy Lamar, environmental activist Wangari Maathai, architect Zaha Hadid, filmmaker Maya Deren, and physicist Chien-Shiung Wu. Some names are known, some are not, but all of the women had a lasting effect on the fields they worked in. The charming, information-filled full-color spreads show the Dreamers as both accessible and aspirational so reader knows they, too, can grow up to accomplish amazing feats.
