I feel as though I have definitely read better books about young Greta Thunberg in the past, however, with that said I am still an immense fan of the Little People, Big Dreams series. And so, Greta Thunberg by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Anke Weckmann is an amazing children’s book for children to be exposed to. With so many books about this brilliant young woman being published, it’s hard not to compare; but frankly, I think they’re all wonderful.
Where my comparisons leave me loving other books just a little bit more is mainly in the artwork. I wasn’t massively fond of it this time. It is bright and colorful though, perfect for keeping the attention of young readers. Ultimately, for me, the story is the most important part of this entire book and of any Greta Thunberg book. And Greta’s story is truly inspiring, of a young girl who grew up caring deeply about the damage we are doing to our planet and decided she would take a stand to try and stop it.
Greta is an important name in the world today and one that I don’t think anyone will ever be forgetting. I am truly grateful to her and I hope that her story will embolden other young children to stand up, speak out, and make a change they care about. This is a great book for all children. I hope they find it inspiring.
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
