Een lief en leuk prentenboekje over het leven van Coco Chanel!
Ik was eerst niet zeker of ik deze wel wilde lenen, ik ben wel geinteresseerd in Coco, maar ik weet niet, iets trok me toch niet naar het boek toe. Uiteindelijk toch maar geleend en ik ben ook blij dat ik het heb gedaan. Dit boek was echt heel zoet en leuk om te lezen.
Ik vond het alleen jammer dat we niet begonnen bij de geboorte van Coco en dan wat van het gezin zien, in plaats daarvan is de eerste pagina (pagina's) dat ze bij het kl ...more
I loved this book! The illustrations are wonderful and I learned so much about Coco Chanel that I didn't know before! That being said, all I knew about her was that she was a famous designer and has a perfume line, but it was a nice small biography of how she got started and where she got the name Coco. It's an easy read so I read it pretty fast, but it's a great book! I loved the timeline and the little photographs of Chanel at the end.
Coco Chanel er andet bind i serien Små mennesker, store drømme. Den første bog i serien er Frida Kahlo. 'Små mennesker, store drømme' er en portrætserie med nogle af historiens sejeste kvinder i hovedrollerne. Den henvender sig til børn fra 5-årsalderen, og fælles for alle seriens bøger er budskabet om, at en stålsat vilje kan bane vej for ethvert lille menneskes største drømme.

This series aims to inform children about some interesting people who had big dreams and show them that these dreams can be achieved if you try. This particular book focuses on Coco Chanel who I knew little about before reading this (other than that she was involved in fashion) and so this was an excellent start point to finding out about her.
These books are also all illustrated with lovely artwork and full page spr ...more
This cute little kids book is an introduction to a world renowned designer whose life, though quite controversial, was very interesting. Having read her biography once before, I wondered how they would tame her life story into a children's book but I have to say the authors and illustrators did a fabulous job to tell her story through sequential art and few words. The drawings reminded me of the cartoon "Madeleine". Quick read, definitely suitable to read to a younger audience. Special thanks to ...more
I really like the message of putting your ideas out there, even if they're different. Brava.
Meet Coco Chanel- a young girl who is a bit different, but paves the way in women's fashion. Great for lower elementary readers
