He was supposed to follow in his father's footsteps, who was a Prussian officer, but the private tutor saw in Alexander above all a "head unwilling to learn" who preferred to collect plants and shells. At ten he was making maps of the planetary system and the American continent. Later he travels to America himself and writes down everything that strikes him there. The conclusions he draws from this are revolutionary. And his books are still read today. He was the first environmentalist - more than 250 years ago!
The beautiful Little People, Big Dreams series tells and illustrates the life and work of famous people for children. The selected people have achieved great things, but they all have one theme in common: it all began with a big dream when they were little themselves. A book series that also makes us adults dream and above all gives one thing: courage and self-confidence.
