Meet three inspirational women from the world of music: Ella Fitzgerald, Dolly Parton, and Josephine Baker! This boxed gift set of three hardcover books from the internationally best-selling Little People, BIG DREAMS series introduces little dreamers to the lives of these incredible women who worked in music and changed the world.
In these remarkable true stories, learn how three women overcame hardship to achieve great success in music. Ella spent her early years singing and dancing on the streets of Harlem. She went on to become one of the most famous jazz singers of the twentieth century. Dolly grew up poor in money but rich in love. She followed her musical passion to make her name as a world-famous singer-songwriter and businesswoman. Josephine was born for the stage. She moved to Paris and found her audience, working as a dancer, and actor--and even a French Resistance agent. Each of these moving books features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the woman's life.
