Book Review: The Little Books of the Little Brontës by Sara O’Leary

The inspiring true tale of young siblings who loved to make stories — and grew up to be among English literature's finest writers. A picture book for fans of Mary Who Wrote Frankenstein.

Many years ago, the four motherless children of the Brontë family — Charlotte, Branwell, Emily and Anne — lived in a windswept house by the moors with their father. Although their lives were often filled with sadness and their world was only as large as the distance they could walk, their INNER worlds were bound only by their imaginations. Hungry for stories, these children devoured novels and poetry, history and fables. And with the gift of a group of toy soldiers, they were inspired to make their own stories, and their own tiny books . . . a passion that would last them a lifetime. 

I loved this book! I knew nothing of their stories before reading this picture book and am inclined to read more about these interesting siblings. The pictures in this book were perfection—they truly brought the words to life. 

As a family who loves to read and write stories this book touched that place inside a mom who wants to foster the same imagination and playfulness and happiness these four siblings had. An absolutely wonderful book!
