Discover the life of Aretha Franklin, 'The Queen of Soul.'
The fourth of five children, Aretha was born in Tennessee and took the stage at an early age in her father's church choir. She went on to become the best-selling rhythm and blues singer of all time, and the first woman to be installed in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the broadcaster's life.

Suggested age is 5-7. Personally I think these are perfect as newborn heirloom gifts upwards. My daughter is 5 and is now using them to practice her sound blending and phonics, so they bring ongoing joy.
