" Awesome little quality-made books featuring people who persisted beyond circumstances of there time. Includes a brief and more detailed timeline at the end. Exceptional illustrations perfect for children. " said.

" I'm sad to say that there was lot in this little children's book that I didn't know or else forgot about Gandhi. Once again Sanchez Vegara does a wonderful job showcasing a great person in history. She makes Gandhi's story understandable for little ones without discounting the truth of it.I received an advanced copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review. " said.

" I LOVE these little books! What a fantastic series this is!Like the David Bowie book I reviewed a couple of days ago, Mahatma Gandhi is brightly and cheerfully illustrated while the words tell the story of a truly special soul. There are many instances for discussion in this book and lessons for learning.read more: http://saschadarlington.me/2019/05/01... " said.

"This is a fantastic read for young children to learn more about the life of Mahatma Gandhi. It does remarkably well at simplifying the historical and political aspects of the story. It ultimately brings across the idea of peace being the greatest "weapon" you have to use and it does so in an effective way. I have read a few of these books now and they have all been charming and sweet.

The illustrations add to it all and make it an absolute must for young children. And it's important to teach them about these important figures in a way they can understand and appreciate.

"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 (Little People, Big Dreams)' by Ma Isabel Vegara with illustrations by Albert Arrayas is a picture book in a series about famous people.

Mahatma, born Mahandas, was a little boy with a big heart. His mother taught him to be honest. When he was older, he went to school in London. He took his law degree to South Africa to work as a lawyer, but found prejudice there. His first protest was there in the middle of the street. It became the first peaceful resistance movement. From there he went back to India and more peaceful, gentle protest.

This is such a beautifully told story. I love the sweet drawings of a gentle child who became a world leader. The book includes a timeline. I have appreciated almost every book in this series I've read.

I received a review copy of this ebook from Quarto Publishing Group - Frances Lincoln Childrens, and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.

"The author of many of the books in Little People, BIG DREAMS series, Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara is never better than here with her simple prose and well selected words. This gentle story of the life of
Mahatma Gandhi is told without drama and hyperbole; the basic facts reveal the nature of this amazing person and special life.
A clever man he was educated to degree level in London where he graduated in law. He practised in South Africa and found further examples of discrimination, racial injustice and inequality.
He understood being thrown of public transport, echoes of another story. He instigated peaceful demonstration for civil rights. Copied the world over and currently practiced in the U.K with the Extinction Rebellion: London climate protest.
Imprisoned and refusing to eat he was a national hero in his home country India. This gentle man adopted a simple approach to challenge the harsh rule ofcolonial Great Britain attracting support and a following across all religious and political divides, rich or poor.
A person worthy of his place here and what is more here is a wonderful series where the larger collection of books makes for an excellent box set.

"Originally published on my blog: Nonstop Reader.

Mahatma Gandhi is a new biography for young readers in the Little People, Big Dreams series. I've reviewed a number of these titles and they all manage to pack an impressive amount of detail in these little books in an age-appropriate and accessible manner.

Due out 2nd May 2019 from Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint, it'll be 32 pages and will be available in hardcover, and ebook formats.

Written by Isabel Sánchez Vegara it's well written in clear accessible language. The gentle and sweetly humorous illustrations were well done. I loved the picture of young Gandhi with the dove (see cover illustration). The art by Albert Arrayas is appealing and colorful and supports the text very well. The illustrations are rich in small subtle details which bear a closer look.

Well written and appealing, I am really enjoying all of these little books. This one is a worthy addition.

Five stars. This would make a superlative reading circle book, classroom library book, or gift.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
