This book is about the life of Audrey Hepburn. It tells about her dreams and her childhood. It shows that Audrey did not always have a glamorous life like the movies show. She went through many obstacles but it shows that anybody can make their dreams come true. I have always loved Audrey Hepburn and this book made me love her even more. ( )

"Just Being Audrey" is about the famous actress Audrey Hepburn, her rise to fame, and how she always stayed true to herself. Audrey faced World War II as a child, moved to New York City to start a new life and career, and became one of the world's most famous actresses. During all of that, she always remembered to be herself no matter what came her way. With her fame, she also became an ambassador for the organization called UNICEF, the same organization that helped her during World War II and has received praise and awards for her activism. Overall, I learned more about Audrey Hepburn from reading this picture book. The words and water color illustrations were beautifully written and drawn. I would definitely read this book with my students one day to promote important women in history. ( )

This bibliography about Audrey Hepburn was a great read. Especially for young readers. This book is great for introducing bibliographies to ones who haven't read a bibliography before. It had great illustrations n the book that really help bring out Audrey. The author provides great background on who Audrey Hepburn was. Showing how she reached her dream with struggles.

This book is short and to the point. I would defiantly use this book to introduce biographies in my elementary classroom. ( )
