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, Cambridge, MA 2018 Amelia Bloomer List

selection, American Library 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 question to ask is, ‘What is my next

victory?â€'– Mina Samuels, author of Run Like a Girl'What an inspiring book! These beautifully

drawn portraits cover the triumphs and troubles of fifty athletes—some you've heard of and many you

haven't. There's a familiar pattern to these stories: A woman sets her mind on something, someone tells herÂ

it can't be done, and she goes ahead and does it anyway, setting records along the way. You'll cheer for these

ladies, and for author Rachel Ignotofsky.'– Lisa Taggart, author of Women Who Win See all Editorial
