In this new series, discover the lives of outstanding people from designers and artists to scientists. All of them went on to achieve incredible things, yet all of them began life as a little child with a dream. The first book follows Coco Chanel, from her early life in an orphange--where she is a genius with needle and thread--to her time as a cabaret singer, hat maker, and, eventually, international fashion designer. This inspiring and informative little biography comes with extra facts about Coco's life at the back.


Gabrielle "was" different. While the other girls played, she liked to sew with a needle and thread. -page 5

My two-bits:

A quick way to learn about inspirational women in history is with this illustrated children's series. The basic essential qualities of each woman is presented with key moments in their lives as they strived towards their dream.

I love the look of this collection and plan on reading more of it.

I picked this up to read before getting into Maya's book. I love the overall theme of girls with dreams and working towards it despite hardships.

  1. Oh cuteness! I love these. My favorite thing is to give books for baby shower gifts and I love finding good ones to tuck in the present bag. Love seeing important world figures portrayed in this board book series.
