I haven’t read any books in this series, but this one was very cute.
This series is great for young kids to learn about important historical figures. This book is about David Bowie and how he became a rock star.
David Bowie was an interesting man. I think his music and costumes would appeal to kids, so this book is a great way to introduce kids to David Bowie.
