One Black History Month, Vashti Harrison illustrated one African American woman from history every day and posted the portraits online along with a small biography. She earned her MFA in film/video from California Institute of the Arts, where she snuck into animation and illustration classes to learn from Disney and DreamWorks legends. Featuring 18 trailblazing women artists and scientists, Think Big, Little One is the irresistible board book adaptation of Vashti Harrison's second book Little Dreamers: Visionary Women Around the World. The appeal is very much that of [ Goodnight Stories for] Rebel Girls or Frances Lincoln's Little People, Big Dreams series, but this is the only such collection to focus exclusively on black women. Featuring 40 trailblazing black women in the world’s history, this book educates and inspires as it relates true stories of women who broke boundaries and exceeded all expectations.

The book is beautifully illustrated and the mini biographies of the black women is not too wordy so it's quite nice to read. I don't have official word on all of this and may need to defer to my publisher and agent for a lot of things, but here I've answered some of the most frequent questions I get about Little Leaders!

I hope to do more events soon, but I am based on the East Coast and may only be able to visit the northeast and midatlantic in the coming months.

It’s excellent that children can get an introduction to lesser-known African American women such as abolitionist Mary Prince and sculptor Augusta Savage, alongside the better-known Rosa Parks and Sojourner Truth. She earned her BA from the University of Virginia as a double major in Media Studies and Studio Art with concentrations in Film and Cinematography. The legends in this book span centuries and continents, but what they have in common is that each one has blazed a trail for generations to come.

He's a little young to understand some of the more complex words , but it's certainly one that will be referred back to over the next few years.

Sometimes non-fiction is also a fantastic way to tempt a reluctant reader into sitting down with a book. Debut author/illustrator Vashti Harrison pairs captivating text with stunning illustrations as she tells the stories of both iconic and lesser-known female figures of black history - from nurse Mary Seacole, to politician Diane Abbott, mathematician Katherine Johnson and singer Shirley Bassey. Among these biographies, young readers will find heroes, role models and everyday women who did extraordinary things.It harkens back to classic children's illustrations done by Mary Blair or Mr Happy by Roger Hargreaves. It makes a refreshing change to see some pages filled with strong powerful determined achieving Women. It resulted in this beautiful and profound book, which chronicles the struggles and achievements of historic and contemporary black women.
