David Bowie - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This charmingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with the fascinating life of David Bowie.
As a child growing up in Brixton, young David was always different. He had a head full of songs and ideas that set him apart. He began by playing the saxophone. After playing with several bands in London, he decided to try a solo career. His song writing talent and musical skill made him one of rock and roll's all-time greatest artists.
Told in a simple yet engaging fashion, accompanied by stylish quirky illustrations, this book is perfectly pitched for young readers discovering who their heroes and heroines are.
This delightful series (Little People, Big Dreams) introduces young readers to outstanding people, from designers and artists to scientists. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream. At the back of this book there is a facts and photo section to support the story told (great for parents and older children hungry for a few more details).
Also in this series - Dolly Parton, Emmeline Pankhurst, Amelia Earhart, Agatha Christie, Maya Angelou, Coco Chanel and Frida Kahlo.
Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
