Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 4-6--Two collective biographies of women who have reached the pinnacle in their respective sports and changed them in some fundamental way. Tennis greats Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graff, and Monica Seles are profiled. Figure skaters include Olympic gold medalists Sonja Henie, Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Katarina Witt, Kristi Yamaguchi, and Oksana Baiul. Each book has short chapters on their lives and a smattering of average quality, black-and-white photographs. The clear, easy-to-read texts include quotes from the featured superstars, their coaches, and/or their family members. Related terms and pronunciations are clarified within the narratives. Readers wanting to know more about women in sports will find these books informative and they may be led to more complete biographies.
