Description

Meet three inspirational Earth Heroes whose love of the natural world inspires them to make a difference: Jane Goodall, Greta Thunberg, and David Attenborough! This boxed gift set of three hardback books from the internationally best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series introduces little dreamers to the lives of these incredible people who work to understand and protect this amazing planet.

In these remarkable true stories, learn how three very different people use their voice to speak up for animals and the environment. When Jane was little, her father gave her a toy chimpanzee named Jubilee. This inspired her lifelong love of animals, and after living with chimpanzees in their natural habitat, she now educates the public on animal rights. When young Greta learned of the climate crisis, she couldn't understand why people in power were not doing anything to save our Earth. But her "School Strike for Climate" has now inspired millions, and taught everyone her valuable message: "No one is too small to make a difference." As a child, David spent hours in the science library, collating his own specimens and creating a mini animal museum. Now, he is loved all over the world for telling the untold stories of these animals. Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the Earth Hero's life.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a best-selling series of books and educational games that explore 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.

This empowering series offers inspiring messages to children of all ages, in a range of formats. The board books are told in simple sentences, perfect for reading aloud to babies and toddlers. The hardcover versions present expanded stories for beginning readers. Paper dolls, learning cards, matching games, and other fun learning tools provide even more ways to make the lives of these role models accessible to children. Also available to collect are boxed gift sets, including Little People, BIG DREAMS: Women in Science, with hardcover editions of Ada Lovelace, Amelia Earhart and Marie Curie, and Little People, BIG DREAMS: Women in Arts,with hardcover editions of Coco Chanel, Frida Kahlo and Audrey Hepburn.

Inspire the next generation of outstanding people who will change the world with Little People, BIG DREAMS!
