Created in partnership with Ebony Jr., this captivating Little Golden Book biography celebrates Beyonce's rise from a shy little girl to a world-famous superstar. Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Beyonce performed in various singing and dancing competitions as a child. She rose to fame in the late 1990s as the lead singer of Destiny's Child, one of the best-selling girl groups of all time. Beyonce continues to inspire and demonstrate that dreams-no matter how big-can be achieved through hard work and determination. Michelle Obama has called her a "role model for us all." Since 1945, Ebony magazine has shined a spotlight on the worlds of Black people in America and worldwide, telling their stories. Ebony Jr! was created in 1973 to give Black children a magazine that was all their own. The magazine included stories, comics, puzzles, and cartoons centering Black children. Its mission was to ignite a love of reading and a love of self in Black kids, and we're continuing that with our branded LGB program.
