Vashti Harrison

This beautifully illustrated board book edition of Little Leaders: Bold Women in Black History by #1 New York Times bestselling author Vashti Harrison showcases women who changed the world, and is the perfect goodnight book to inspire big dreams.

Dream Big, Little One features eighteen trailblazing Black women in American history, including heroes, role models, and everyday women who did extraordinary things--bold women whose actions and beliefs contributed to making the world better for generations to come.

The leaders in this book may be little, but they all did something big and amazing.
