Description

Gr 4 Up—Utterly browsable and completely engaging, this collection of 50 female athletes offers

up brief glimpses into the lives and careers of a relatively diverse group of women. Wandering far

off the well-beaten path of familiar names (Billie Jean King, Wilma Rudolph, Mia Hamm), the book

also highlights women who excelled (or currently excel) at less traditional activities, such as roller

derby (Ann Calvello), archery (Kim Soo-Nyung), bodybuilding (Bev Francis), and refereeing (Violet

Palmer). Ignotofsky clearly made every effort to scour the globe and include athletes from many

different countries. Each spread profiles an individual and features a page-length description of

background and career high points, a quote from the athlete, and a cheerful illustration captioned

with additional facts. Organized chronologically by the athletes' birth year, this compendium, taken

as a whole, is a captivating look at the history of women in sports, emphasizing that no individual

athlete is more or less important than the next. Information about anatomy, pay inequalities

between men and women, and other related topics can be found throughout. The writing is

accessible to a wide range of readers, and the material is concise and orderly, often leaving

readers wanting more. Fortunately, a thorough bibliography is appended, making it easy to dive

deeper into the lives of some of these fascinating trailblazers. VERDICT This title is as edifying as

it is entertaining; a timely addition to nonfiction collections.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School,

Association'Exhaustive and enlightening—don't miss it.'– Kirkus Reviews'This is one of the

books we've been waiting for—a compendium of great women athletes and the struggles they

faced. As Billie Jean King taught us, ‘Pressure is a privilege.â€'– Lesley Visser, Hall of

Fame sportscaster'This luminescent book tells the stories of women and girls who have not only

excelled in athletics, but also often changed the world by doing so. I was agog at these lively

biographies, and dazzled by the accompanying illustrations that seem to cartwheel, swim, pole

vault, and double flip off the page. This is a book for girls who want inspiration on the field, in the

pool, or down the track. Itâ€s also for girls who arenâ€t sporty at all, but love stories of

courage, perseverance, sass, doggedness, and fun. And donâ€t forget the boys, who will be

riveted by these rollicking tales and who need to see that girl power has been alive and well for

many years, and is alive and well today.'– Caroline Paul, author of The Gutsy Girl

'Rachel Ignotofsky's delightful book renders the healthy pleasure of sports for girls and women in

buoyant color and form—from Bloomer Girls to Skate Bettys, in calf length skirts or disguised as


men—reminding us that no matter if you are nine or ninety-eight, the questio
