K-Gr 3–The lives of subjects who have impacted political change are profiled in these titles. Greta Thunberg began helping the planet at a young age by conserving energy and water. She was so affected by the knowledge of global warming that she began protesting all over the world to bring about real change in the planet’s future. Kamala Harris became involved in demonstrations thanks to her parents, and this developed into a desire to help others throughout her life. Years later, she became the first female Vice President of the United States. The volume on Martin Luther King, Jr. shares the struggles and injustices that the civil rights leader and many others faced due to racial inequities. It describes King’s legacy and how he fought peacefully to put an end to segregation. Michelle Obama hoped to obtain a higher education and to reach Princeton despite not always having support; this volume shows her accomplishments as she became a lawyer and began to help many young people reach their own dreams, and her role as First Lady of the United States. Each uniquely illustrated title is full of color, with short paragraphs of Spanish text accompanying each spread and engaging readers with a conversational tone and interesting details. A spread featuring black-and-white photographs, a small time line, and additional biographical details accompanies the text.
VERDICT Making the lives of these important political figures accessible to younger readers, these “Little People, Big Dreams en Español” titles are perfect for Spanish biography collections.
