My First Steve Jobs
by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This title is an entry in the Little People, Big Dreams series for the very youngest children. The story is simply told and filled with illustrations. Young listeners will learn about Steve’s interests and curiosity, and how these led to his and his friend’s creation of the home computer. They will see that Steve changed the world in ways that had not previously been imagined.
The first pages mention that Steve had been adopted. I feel that perhaps a bit more (like the next page or so) could have said something about his family life. As it is, the fact just hangs there a bit.
I liked this entry in the series. However, it felt a bit like an ad for Apple to me. Nonetheless, young listeners will have been introduced to an original and an icon.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
