This time the Little Person with a Big Dream is Elvis Presley. How did this musical icon find his way? In this title, kids will have the chance to find out. As always, in this fine series, there are some additional resources at the end of the book.
Readers watch as young Elvis, who was born in a shack, becomes interested in music. With talent and perseverance, Elvis became the “King” of Rock and Roll, a new musical style. For it was Elvis who joined country music and blues in a new way that became known by that iconic term.
Elvis had a huge following for all of his performing talents including acting. Readers also learn that Elvis was loyal to his country and served in the armed forces. His dream brought him all the way from that shack to Graceland.
Many thanks to Quarto-Frances Lincoln Children’s Books for this title. All opinions are my own.
