Amanda Gorman


Amanda Gorman Childrens book from the Little People Big Dreams Collection

Discover the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and athletes. All of them achieved great things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. 

Growing up with a speech impediment and an auditory processing disorder, Amanda had hills to climb. Through poetry she found her voice, and became America's first Youth Poet Laureate. After reciting a poem at President Biden's inauguration, the audience was moved by Amanda's unifying words and she became a shining light for the whole world. 

This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the poet's life.
