Little People, BIG DREAMS Launches Dream BIG Bedtime Story Hour

In honor of the series’ five-year anniversary, families are encouraged to dedicate one hour to reading together   

The Quarto Group is launching the Dream BIG Bedtime Story Hour to celebrate the five-year anniversary of its flagship series, Little People, BIG DREAMS. Establishing a good bedtime routine is always important, but especially during time change Sunday, when daylight saving time ends and kids’ sleep routines are interrupted. The program encourages families to help kids adjust to the time change and make bedtime more meaningful by dedicating one hour to reading together before bed.

Little People, BIG DREAMS is a bestselling series of books and educational games 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. During the month of November, families that share their bedtime story hour photos on social media with @quartokids and use #DreamBigStoryHour and #littlepeoplebigdreams will be entered to win a prize pack full of books from the Little People, BIG DREAMS collection.

“We are thrilled to launch this bedtime story hour challenge to encourage families to join us in celebrating this powerful series of books while reinforcing the importance of quality time together,” said Group Publisher Katie Cotton. “It’s very exciting to be celebrating five years of Little People, BIG DREAMS books that make the lives of these iconic role models accessible for children, providing a powerful message to inspire all young people to achieve their dreams.”

The Little People, BIG DREAMS series first began as the Spanish-language Pequeña Y Grande series from author Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara and has now grown into a worldwide bestselling series with more than 70 titles available in more than 22 languages. The series was recently named as part of #OprahsFavoriteThings for 2021. As Oprah says on OprahDaily.com, “It’s never too early to introduce youngsters to inspiring people who have changed the world.”
