The story of Alan Turing is beautifully told in this new title in the Little People, Big Dreams series. Nothing is glossed over as the story is told not only about the breaking of the Engima code but also Turing’s being gay and the way that he was treated in England.
Readers of this title who may feel a bit alone or different will be encouraged by learning about all that Alan did, after he faced the loss of a person very important to him. This book could be a great jumping off point for talking with a child.
Alan’s story is told in a matter of fact style. The illustrations are lovely, expressive and greatly enhance the text.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for the opportunity to read a book in one of my favorite series.
