Meet Josephine Baker, the world-famous entertainer, activist, and French Resistance agent in this true story of her life! Josephine Baker was born for the stage. But growing up in segregated St. Louis, she didn't have the same opportunities as white entertainers. So, she moved to Paris where audiences fell in love with her. Josephine worked as a dancer, an actor, and even a spy. She then spent the rest of her life spreading the word that people of all colors can live together in harmony.
The My First - Little People, BIG DREAMS series takes the biographies from the popular Little People, BIG DREAMS picture book series and adapts them for younger readers. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream!
