Little People, Big Dreams: Marilyn Monroe by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara & Ana Albero. Let’s introduce the youngest dreamers to the incredible life of the iconic movie star with the Little People, Big Dreams: Marilyn Monroe book.
Little Norma Jeane grew up between foster homes, an orphanage and a family friend’s house – where she was forbidden from watching movies. Through her difficult childhood and teen years, she dreamed of becoming an actress. One day a photographer spotted her and gave her a modelling contract, and from this day she was 'Marilyn Monroe'. She was much-admired but suffered from pre-performance anxiety, which made her late to set and in-and-out of movie contracts. Her films grossed over $200 million but she was known to have said, 'I don’t want to make money. I just want to be wonderful'.
Little People, Big Dreams is a best-selling series of books that explore the lives of outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists and activists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream.
