Women in Sports : 50 Fearless Athletes Who Played to Win, our inspiring Book of the Week for all ages, was written and illustrated by Rachel Ignotofsky and highlights the achievements and stories of fifty notable women athletes from 1800s to today. It is a book for both girls who want inspiration on the field, in the pool, or on the track and for girls who aren’t sporty but are inspired by stories of courage, perseverance, boldness and fearlessness.
The women profiled in the book often set their minds to do something and are told it can’t be done. They go ahead and do it anyhow and often create records along the way!
Rachel’s illustrations take dense information and make it fun and accessible for all ages and learning about these inspiring women exciting. With the Commonwealth Games only weeks away, this book is highly recommended for all our readers.
“This book is filled with stories of little girls who grew up to achieve their greatest dreams – stories of women who pushed themselves to the limit, did the impossible, and became legends.” Introduction.
