Feisty, talented, outspoken Megan Rapinoe is the latest little person with a big dream in thisseries of short biographies for young children. Kids will hopefully be inspired by this amazing soccer player and activist. I know that I was!
There are interesting facts for kids here. For example, Megan is a twin and she had a brother with whom she loved to play soccer. Readers will also learn that Megan felt different from others growing up and that soccer was a refuge for her. It also provided her with a college scholarship. This book also touches on Megan’s identifying as gay and her belief in rights for all.
The illustrations in this title are sprightly and fun. They add to the accompanying text. All in all, an excellent entry in this long running series.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
