Wilma Unlimited

Overcoming multiple obstacles, including crippling polio, Wilma Rudolph persisted and exercised and ran her way to being the first American woman to win three gold medals at one Olympics. In the aftermath of the Summer Olympic Games in London, this is a great picture book with an important story.

Wilma Unlimited: How Wilma Rudolph Became the World’s Fastest Woman by Kathleen Krull and magnificently illustrated by David Diaz covers themes on diligence, physical fitness and perseverance.

  1. This sounds like a very good book indeed. Thanks for visiting my blog after seeing me on the Emma Walton Hamilton live forum event at WriteOnCon!

    You might be interested in something else I participate in — Perfect Picture Book Fridays at Susanna Leonard Hill’s blog. It’s on hiatus until September 7, but during the school year we share brief reviews of picture books along with suggested resources. You can find a list of all the books I’ve featured on the sidebar of my blog. Here’s a description of the idea from Susanna’s first post about it. http://susannahill.blogspot.ca/2011/11/perfect-picture-books.html

    Hope you’ll consider joining us!
