" Another wonderful book about great people of history, beautifully illustrated and well written. Tells the story of Mohandas Ghandi in a very simple way, so children can understand about this great man. A wonderful book to introduce children to Ghandi and introduce them to further ideas like protest, racism and peace. Another great read this series is wonderful wish we’d had these when I was young Thanks to netgalley and the publisher for a free copy for an honest opinion " said.

"Mahatma Gandhi is a book for young children, introducing them to the famous leader. The text gives enough information to be interesting and educational for its young audience without providing any disturbing information the younger set is not ready for. The illustrations are colorful, with enough detail to spark interest and insure children will want to revisit the story many times.
There are photographs of Gandhi at the end of the book,. Overall, a great introduction to nonfiction in general, and to the historical leader specifically.
Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.

"Mahatma Gandhi, written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Albert Arrayas, will be available from Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Children’s on April 30, 2019. It is part of their Little People, Big Dreams series.

Arrayas’ captivating illustrations add a sense of whimsy to this picture book biography of Gandhi, a man deeply invested in justice. [Read more…]

The text explains that Gandhi studied in London, and then moved to South Africa to practice law. While in apartheid South Africa, Gandhi was forced off a segregated train, which prompted his first peaceful protest.

Sanchez Vegara’s focus on big events, and the quick passage of time, represents Gandhi as more myth than man. His personal life is absent from the text, as are concrete instances of adversity. As a result, opportunities to humanize Gandhi as well as educate children about cultural diversity and political history are missed.

I love Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Children’s Little People, Big Dreams series, but this is not their strongest offering to date.

"The ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The ‘My First Little People, Big Dreams’ series provides informative and inspirational biographies about people who left a mark on this earth, no matter what difficulties they have encountered.
These stories are very short, but that’s because they’re books for children, so it’s totally understandable.
I think they are a very smart and wonderful way to introduce little children to such important figures.
This one is about the great Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of the Indian independence movement against British colonial rule. He was the first one to use non-violence to rise up, and I think this is a very important thing to teach to children.

This series is always a joy to read, it’s a really nice introduction to well known people for little children. Of course the plot is always a little bit fast but that’s to be expected and it’s totally understandable.
I've always been intrigued by Gandhi. So much so that he was actually part of my high school thesis. The fact that he was able to create a peaceful resistance movement is very inspiring. Children would benefit a lot from learning more about this astonishing man who changed so much using just the power of peace.
