My First Little People, Big Dreams - Mahatma Gandhi
Perfect for little hands, this board book version of Mahatma Gandhi—from the critically acclaimed, mulitimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series—introduces the youngest dreamers to the incredible life of the father of India.
As a young teenager in India, Gandhi led a rebellious life and went against his parents' values. But as a young man, he started to form beliefs of his own that harked back to the Hindu principles of his childhood. Gandhi began to dream of unity for all peoples and religions. Inspired by this idea, he led peaceful protests to free India from British rule and unite the country—ending violence and unfair treatment. His bravery and free-thinking made him one of the most iconic people of peace in the world, known as Mahatma, meaning "great soul." Babies and toddlers will love to snuggle as you read to them the engaging story of this amazing activist, and will also enjoy exploring the stylish and quirky illustrations of this sturdy board book on their own.

Bubs loves these books! And Gandhi is a hit! She loves the birds that are on each page, the lovely coloured scarves.. she's maybe too little to understand everything about Gandhi's message, but that will sink in too with exposure. Love that we're introducing this early. Very happy with this book!
