"Dream Big by Joyce Wan combines large-headed, toddler-friendly images of fifteen famous women with big child-relatable images of the dreams they dared to follow in an over-sized format. Using simple two or three-word phrases and bright, bold colors it explores these big-building, high-flying, fast-running, and steep-climbing dreamers. The final spread lists the women, their accomplishments, and then includes a space for the reader (“Can’t wait to see where your dreams take you.”) The large format and encouragement for us all to dream makes this a book kids and parents will enjoy time and again."– Cybils Award

"This inspiring oversized board book reminds toddlers that they can do great things — if they dream big!

The final inspiring person? "You. Can’t wait to see where your dreams take you!" Affirming and empowering, this book is a delight to read to little ones and will be a treasured message of encouragement for years to come." – The Mighty Girl
