Review: Are you the kind of person who can't wait to choose your next outfit? Then Fashion Style Book by Robyn Newton, Gillian Henney, and Amy Marks is the perfect book for you. In this book you will travel through the wonderful world of fashion. You will learn about famous designers, fashion through times, and learn about key fashion must-haves.
In Fashion Style Book you will learn all about fashion in a few short chapters. The first chapter is about famous designers like Channel. Not only do you learn about how the designers became famous, you learn a short summery on there life before fame. The next chapter is about fashion through time. Do you ever wonder what people wore in the 1990's? You will find out that information and more in this book. You can travel through the greatest fashion times in history. The next chapter is about fashion must-haves and the different types of them. For example there is more than one type of denim jeans. Fashion Style Book will teach you the main types if denim jeans and what looks best with them. The next and last chapter has heaps of activities. There are two main activities. One is a quiz. The quizzes will help you find your inner fashion sense. The other main activity is creating your own designs. This chapter is great because you have 4 pages to place pictures that you have printed or cut out from a magazine. That is called a mood board. At the end of the book there is a fashion dictionary. That part of the book is there so you can fully understand what the world of fashion is talking about.
I recommend this book for girls ages 10-14. I chose that age range because of the vocabulary. This book has a high reading level. So it would not be good for younger kids because they might not be able to understand the vocabulary. They also may not be as interested in fashion as older girls are. I liked this book because it taught me how to look great while feeling comfortable. I also was also able to learn about designers I admire. This book would be great to read with friends. I think that Fashion Style Book is such a great book because you can be up to date with the latest fashion trends. Robyn Newton, Gillian Henney, and Amy Marks are amazing authors. I have never heard of these three authors but after they wrote this book, I will definitely look into more books written by any of them.
