Little People, Big Dreams does it again! Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara creates this fun-loving story based on the life of Dwayne Johnson. The illustrations are awesome, and the lessons to be learned are endless. We see Dwayne Johnson face fears of failure and doubt. The strength in overcoming and perseverance that it took for Dwayne Johnson to become the talented actor we know today, is inspiring to kids of all ages. With small facts, I even learned from reading the Dwayne Johnson book from the always inspiring and encouraging collection of Little People, Big Dreams.
