The gorgeous combination of inspiration, information, and illustrations makes this collection of biographies indispensable for readers young and old. Little Legends: Exceptional Men in Black History weaves a story of hope, determination, and accomplishment across a wide variety of professions and interests; there’s something for everyone here. The detailed, inviting way author Vashti Harrison writes these biographies about little-known trailblazers reminds readers that this is just the tip of the iceberg, and entices them to learn more. And Harrison's appealing illustrations help draw readers in to the amazing stories.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
