This is book number 43 in the Little People, BIG DREAMS series.

In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Corazon Aquino, the first female president of the Philippines.

Little Cory was a shy, studious child with a great sense of justice. As a young woman and wife, she and her family felt compelled to speak out against the unjust leader who was ruining their country. Showing bravery, reliability and honesty, she led the revolution that ended the dictator's rule and went on to become the president of the Philippines.

The easy to understand and accessible text brings little Cory's story to life, from her earliest years to her passionate fight through repression and personal loss to bring democracy to the Philippines.
