These books are just wonderful. Tabitha got most of them for Christmas, and couldn’t love them more. Her favourites are Amelia Earhart (and she ended up dressing as her for World Book Day – I was so proud of her!), Maya Angelou, and of course, Coco Chanel (she also has Frida Kahlo, and I’ll soon be adding Agatha Christie and Emmeline Pankhust to our collection) . She loves the stories, and the illustrations are so engaging. You really can’t fault them – empowering messages for our kids (and not just girls either – boys should read them too!), interesting stories and gorgeous illustrations and overall design. The perfect children’s book? Quite possibly.
ps: a few more books that we love in our house right now include Great Women Who Changed The World, Ada Twist, Scientist, and Rosie Revere, Engineer.
