    ‘’To be brave cheerily, to be patient with a glad heart, to stand the agonies of thirst with laughter and song, to walk beside death for months and never be sad – that's the spirit that makes courage worth having.’’ Ernest was born in Kilkea, County Kildare in 1874. Even though he lived in a beautiful land of green and blue and gold, he wanted to travel far and wide and explore the world. He even dug a hole in the yeard, aiming to reach the other side of our planet. When he joined the merchan ‘’To be brave cheerily, to be patient with a glad heart, to stand the agonies of thirst with laughter and song, to walk beside death for months and never be sad – that's the spirit that makes courage worth having.’’ Ernest was born in Kilkea, County Kildare in 1874. Even though he lived in a beautiful land of green and blue and gold, he wanted to travel far and wide and explore the world. He even dug a hole in the yeard, aiming to reach the other side of our planet. When he joined the merchant navy, he had the chance to take part in two expeditions, trying to reach the South Pole. Fascinated and unhindered by Amundsen’s success, he decided to cross Antarctica from sea to sea. In August 1914, Endurance sailed to Antarctica. 28 men and 69 dogs headed to the land of ice and mystery. Stories, games and sports were the means to overcome the great difficulties of the journey to the unknown. When the ship was damaged by the breaking of the ice, Ernest and his men understood that their hopes relied on their lifeboats. In seven days, they had reached Elephant Island, and the flame was rekindled. Ernest managed to lead his men to safety through his courage, strength and undiminished optimism. One more brilliant and moving addition to the beautiful series. ‘’Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all.’’ Many thanks to Frances Lincoln Children’s Books and NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

During his trans-Antarctic expedition his ship, called Endurance, got trapped in the ice and all the crew had to abandon it. The conditions were obviously not ideal, but thanks to his perseverance, courage and his ability to keep a cool head, Shackleton was able to save everyone and bring all his crew back home. I'm sure that everyone will love to read this inspiring adventure!

Once again, the author strikes the perfect balance between presenting information children will find interesting but not making it overwhelming or tedious; it’s clear Sánchez Vegara understands the importance of feeding a child’s curiosity in their early years and instilling a passion for books and reading. One thing that never alters depending on wonderful episode of the series you are reading to your little ones is the targeting of imagination and without fail every one of these has culminated in my nieces and nephews asking many, many intelligent questions and as such serves to introduce them to particular famous characters if so desired. As always, Vegara has done a sterling job of matching tidbits of information about Shackleton with complementary pictures drawn with care and vibrancy by Olivia Holden. From birth to present day, it’s a book that help kids with literacy and fosters a message about the enjoyment of reading. You simply cannot go wrong with this series in general as everything is executed perfectly and tailored beautifully to youngsters. I have purchased rather a few of these for the Little Ones in our family and they never fail to promote an endless fascination. I can not recommend each of these books highly enough and there is more than enough variety in the people they choose to cover to appeal all manner of young ones. Exceptional. Many thanks to Frances Lincoln Children's Books for an ARC.

    The ‘Little People, Big Dreams’ series always lives up to expectations, this book being no different. Telling the story of Ernest Shackleton, it focuses on his travels and one incident in particular where he and his crew were on a boat stuck in ice for nine months. Modeling how to deal with a crisis, Ernest stays calm and leads his crew to eventual safety. Great lessons to be learned from this book for young and old. The illustrations also beautifully framed the narrative.

This was a book that focused on a famous explorer – Ernest Shackleton and we get to read a little about his early life and adventures in his quest to explore! Lovely images and another great addition to the series - 4 stars from me for this one

    Ernest Shackleton // by Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara // illustrated by Olivia Holden "Difficulties are just things to overcome, after all." Ernest Shackleton is a name that I did not immediately recognize. His story though is more familiar. This is another fantastic addition to Vegara's Little People, Big Dreams series. She tells the story in a way that's easy to understand but that still conveys the lessons of the character that the book is about, which in this case is perseverance and optimism.

    I've always been intrigued by Shackleton, and the amount of info the author packed into this short, simple book shows how it doesn't take much to tell a good story. Glad that young readers can catch a glimpse of how choosing to care for and encourage others can help you succeed in extraordinary things. Not many explorers chose that route.

    Pleasant illustrations and simple text make this appropriate for the youngest biography readers. The message, that optimism and teamwork are important characteristics of good explorers, is a good one. A good choice for little adventurous spirits.

    After successful hits in this none-more-varied series, we get a bit of a dud. I did think beforehand, having read adult books about the whole "Endurance" saga, that a quick and primary-school friendly biography such as this would not succeed in portraying the whole drama, or why it should matter to pioneering explorers of the future.

This was by no means dreadful, but I do think it was always on a hiding to nothing when it needed to convey the distances, the cold and the torturous want for healthy food, warmth and a change of company all the men must have suffered. True, we're geared more to a thumbnail sketch of Shackleton himself, but it's not just about how his leadership skills and strength and determination saved the day. Plus, if those indeterminate animals in the artwork are polar bears, as they appear to be, then someone needs a new job.

    There's lots of adventure in this addition to the Little People, Big Dreams series, which looks at the life and accomplishments of Ernest Shackleton, who made three Arctic expeditions. While he never reached the South Pole, his expeditions set new records for the closest anyone had been to the Pole, and became known for being the person you wanted leading you if you were in a difficult situation. Another inspiring addition to this series! #ErnestShackleton #NetGalley

Due out 1st Sept 2020 from Quarto on their Frances Lincoln imprint, it'll be 32 pages and will be available in hardcover format. Written by Isabel Sánchez Vegara it's well written in clear accessible language. The gentle and vibrant illustrations were well done. The art by Olivia Holden is appealing and colorful and supports the story very well. The illustrations are bold and simple. Well written and appealing, I am really enjoying all of these little books. This one is a worthy addition. I also appreciate that there are suggestions for further reading in the back of the book with the timeline of Shackleton's life. Four stars. This would make a superlative reading circle book, classroom library book, or gift. Shackleton was obviously a brave and incredible explorer, but the book also highlights his accomplishments as a leader and optimist and hero to his men. This book is a tribute to an icon who still represents the ideals of exploration and discovery. It's nice to see him being introduced to a new generation of kids.

    This was such a cute story. The pictures are well done and will keep a child’s interest. The story is informative, but does a great job of making it feel like a story. I could see this book appealing to a child who likes non-fiction, but also to a child who likes stories with pictures. As I was reading this, I thought of the kids and the different comments I have heard over why they do or don’t want a book. This is a very engaging book and one I hope to get for my library’s collection.
