New Book: DREAM BIG by Joyce Wan July 9, 2019 03:55

I'm happy to announce the release of my latest book, DREAM BIG, written and illustrated by me and published by Scholastic. This book is about all the ways one can dream, achieve, and succeed and it features 15 heartfelt tributes to female icons and trailblazers throughout history such as Rosa Parks, Jane Goodall, Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Harriet Tubman, and more. With an inspiring message of encouragement and hope, this book is a wonderful gift to be treasured and shared for years to come. 

I was inspired to write this book shortly after the 2016 elections, when listening to Hillary Clinton’s concession speech, I was struck by this line: “And to all of the little girls who are watching this, never doubt that you are valuable and powerful and deserving of every chance and opportunity in the world to pursue and achieve your own dreams.” I was also a new mom to a 6 month old baby girl at the time. I started thinking about dreams, the power of dreams, and how many of the world’s greatest accomplishments started with a dream and how I might want to convey that in book format.
