People show love for themselves, each other, and their communities in lots of ways! Joyce Wan's Love Big, a companion title to her Dream Big, is a celebration of people who have loved big in their own way.
A simple yet empowering poem guides the reader on a tour through these important figures today and in history. Those featured include:
- Wangari Maathai (environmental activist & winner of the Nobel Peace Prize)
- Fred Rogers (beloved television personality)
- Beyoncé (singer-songwriter & philanthropist)
- Malala Yousafzai (activist & winner of the Nobel Peace Prize)
... and many more!
Each rhyming couplet references a different figure, and is accompanied by one of Joyce Wan's representative portraits. The figure's name is hidden in the art for the reader to find! In the back of the book is a glossary of every person included, along with a brief description of who they are.
