Big Buddy Olympic Biographies

Popular Olympic athletes come to life in Big Buddy Olympic Biographies! Each book examines a sports star's background, challenges overcome along the path to the podium, and plans for the future. Short sentences, engaging paragraphs, oversized photographs, and colorful graphics will encourage reluctant readers as they are inspired by these awesome athletes!

The colorful photographs are pleasing. . . . One notable aspect is the inclusion of fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad in the lineup. Librarians will be hard-pressed to find materials on Muhammad for this audience and should consider this title. Pronunciation is provided for more difficult words. . .
