Little People, Big Dreams in US and UK!

On Saturday 21st October, Book Fairies around the UK and US were absolutely THRILLED about hiding copies of books from the inspiring, adorable and amazing children’s book series, Little People, Big Dreams.

WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT?

This empowering series celebrates the important life stories of wonderful women of the world. From designers and artists to scientists, all of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. Not only do these books share amazing life stories, they are educational and presented in a beautiful way suitable for all ages from young kids to adults.

Sharing the experience

All of our book fairies enjoyed flipping through the series and hiding the books for other people to find. One of our book fairies, Carys from Cornwall said:

One of my favorite parts of that campaign was the kids finding the books. I hid three in a pub, and stayed for food there so saw them being picked up. There was this little girl who found the Agatha Christie book and she was so excited she found it! It was adorable! She took it back to her table and read it with her mum before putting it in her bag.

According to Katie, our book fairy in Texas –

I am a big fan of unique children’s books and loved hiding this series! The illustrations are amazing and the educational aspect of the books made them that much better. I was so excited to get Agatha Christie because she is my all time favorite author. The books were hidden in city centre -an area in Houston, TX where many families frequent. The area is coming back to life after a lot of destruction from Harvey so I’m hoping the books made someone’s day brighter.

About this day, the publisher, Quarto Knows,  was extremely excited –

Thank you ever so much for the wonderful book drops over the weekend. I hope everyone involved enjoyed taking part in it as well.
