Coco Chanel - Little People, Big Dreams Picture Book
This strikingly illustrated hardback picture book is a fantastic way to acquaint young readers with Coco Chanel. Following the death of her mother, Gabrielle Chanel was brought up in an orphanage, where she was taught to sew. She always felt different to her peers, and even dreamt in shapes and patters! A fascinating insight into a enduring fashion icon.
A great role model for little ones. 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). Recommended for children 5 - 8 years.
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. Also in this series - Maya Angelou and Frida Kahlo.
Written by Isabel Sanchez Vegara and illustrated by Ana Albero.
