"Recommended by Booklist in their "Series Roundup" section." - Booklist

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

"Wilma Rudolph is in one defining word, inspiring. Born a month early to a large family of hard workers, she contracted many illnesses as a child, including polio. Despite her physical challenges, late entry into formal schooling, and a segregated community, Wilma blossomed into an excellent basketball player and runner. She became a two time Olympic medalist and was considered the fastest woman in the world. Written at a third grade readability level, this graphic book from the “Nonfiction Graphic History and Biography Books” series is meant to hold the interest of third through ninth grade readers. It would prove to be an excellent supplemental text for history units that include topics, such as segregation, polio, Olympic medalists, racism, inspiring stories, influential women, and more. The graphic qualities of the book piqué the interest of middle grade readers while still informing the reader of social and personal issues relevant to the life of a famous American woman." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
