25 Tales of Unstoppable Athletes
Pub Date 07 Sep 2021
Wow! This book is full of inspiration. Whatever sport a rebel girl might be interested in, she can find a role model here. Included are women who play sixteen sports in all, everyone from Serena Williams (tennis) to Simone Biles (gymnast) to Ismita Malaviva (surfer) and others including Lisa Leslie (basketball), Megan Rapinoe (soccer),Tegan Vincent-Cooke (Para dressage rider) and quite a few more.
Each athlete has her story told in two pages. One features text while the other has a gorgeous illustration and quote.
There are a number of activities included at the end of this title as well. For example, there are “write your story”and “what kind of champion are you?”
Note that the final edition of the book may reflect additional information from the Olympics.
I found this to be a wonderful book. Get it for a child in your life. You will both enjoy it.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
