Little People, Big Dreams: Alexander von Humboldt - Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This little biography of Alexander von Humboldt tells the inspiring tale of the botanist and adventurer.
As a kid, Alexander wasn’t a great student. He had a naturally curious mind, but he saw the world differently to his teachers and fellow pupils, and just couldn’t quite fit in. But when he began collecting plants as an adult, Alexander realised he’d found his passion. He became a great explorer, travelling the world to document all kinds of plants and species.
Little People Big Dreams series portrays the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream. Each book has a biographical timeline with historical photographs and extra facts, too.
