She masters so much more: Junko Tabei Masters the Mountains

by Rebel Girls

#JunkoTabeiMasterstheMountains #NetGalley

Rebel Girls are everywhere. Their stories encourage girls to take risks and to believe in themselves. This illustrated chapter book is filled with what makes the series a perfect one for young readers. Here is the story of a girl who learned to take risks even when she was worried or scared, and who was the first woman to climb the world’s tallest mountain. It is an inspiring title, not only for Junko’s athletic accomplishments but also for her character and caring. Her life was not always easy. For example, there were deaths in her family. She did not always feel that she fit in but she kept putting one foot in front of the other. Junko is a fine role model.

The author does a nice job of telling Junko’s story in a book that is filled with details about her life, a special teacher who believed in her, and her her home country, Japan. I highly recommend it.

Many thanks to NetGalley and Rebel Girls for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
