Little kids are fascinated by the world of grown-up work. Created by the talented Japanese illustrator Mayumi Oono, the Little Professionals series takes pretend play at grown-up careers in a fun and original direction, with special interactive features included with each book. 

Fabrics, patterns, notions, and more—I Am a Little Fashion Designer offers the budding stylist a chance to experiment with dresses, outfits, and costumes. A veritable sewing-box worth of accompanying stickers are shaped like pockets, laces, zippers, and bow ties. The combination of craft supplies, creativity, and imagination will help pave the way for tomorrow’s show-stopping runway stars.

The book gives them an insight into making and designing clothing to unlock bright ideas for the future of fashion!" - Maya Ramirez, Winner of Season One of Project Runway Junior
