This powerful and inspiring collection features 21 female trailblazers in their sport, perfect for fans of Women in Sports and Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls! Before girls wore pants or women were permitted to swim in bathing suits at public beaches, who paved the way for women in sports? And who's breaking new ground today? This anthology introduces 21 trailblazing women who have broken through the boundaries set for female athletes. From basketball slam-dunker Lisa Leslie to tennis superstars Venus and Serena Williams, whose father had onlookers jeer at and taunt the girls as they practiced, to Paralympian Tatyana McFadden, who was a speed demon even at her Russian orphanage before she was adopted, to Olympic gold medalist Ethelda Bleibtrey, who was led off to jail when she shed her shoes and stockings to swim in public, Not Playing by the Rules inspires, informs, and illustrates the strength, determination, and accomplishments of women athletes both yesterday and today. With powerful photographs and hand-lettered, inspirational quotes from the athletes themselves, this is a collection every young girl should own. The featured athletes include Ethelda Bleibtrey, Bobbi Gibb, Althea Gibson, Gabby Douglas, Flo Hyman, Lisa Leslie, Mia Hamm, Tatyana McFadden, Mo'ne Davis, Ibtihaj Muhammad, Diana Golden, Constance Applebee, Lizzie Arlington, Babe Didrikson, Alice Coachman, Joy Johnson, Nancy Lieberman, Nadia Comăneci, Venus and Serena Williams, and Yusra Mardini.

Hold on to your cowboy hats and prepare for a wild read! In this book, you'll learn all about the bucking horses, lively livestock, and daring riders of the rodeo world. You'll read about roping, riding, racing, wrestling, and more! You'll also discover the breeds of rodeo horses, how riders handle and care for their animals, and how cattle herding became a rough-and-tumble sport. From Booklist: A love of horses is a common enough affliction among children, though many may be surprised that there are so many ways to gad about on horseback. The Horsing Around series, with plenty of action photos and a layout that evokes the grainy woods of stables and barns, details the different equipment, breeds, techniques, and competitions associated with each corner of the equestrian world. A definite notch up on the adrenaline scale, the always crowd-pleasing bucking broncs get the spotlight in Rodeo, though the book nicely conveys that there’s more to the show than just holding on for dear life. Each book ends with a brief sketch of famous horses and riders and a collection of historical tidbits to enhance readers’ familiarity with the sport. Parents may have appreciated some information on how a love of horses can put a serious dent in the checking account, but this series is nonetheless an invaluable resource for introducing aspiring riders to the distinct substrata of the equestrian world. Grades 3-5. --Ian Chipman "About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.

Every year, the NCAA, NBA, and WNBA crown a league champion. Every four years, basketball teams from all over the world compete for Olympic gold. This exciting book explores historic moments in championship basketball and the top teams that have played in these amazing games. From School Library Journal: Gr 4-6-These slim volumes are packed with information and incorporate graphics, color photos, and bold fonts to explain the rules, history, major teams and players, and skills of the sport. Ruling the Court focuses on championship play, including March Madness and the Paralympic Games. Women and girls share the limelight; a girls' basketball team huddled round their coach graces the cover of Full Court Press. Interspersed with photos are numerous info boxes. Some pages appear cluttered, but the busy layout can also be effective. The authors describe passing, shooting, and rebounding, as well as defensive skills, warming up, and good sportsmanship. VERDICT Though the organization and focus is loose and unfocused, fans will find plenty of interesting nuggets of information in these accessible books.α(c) Copyright 2011.
