I am Billie Jean King

SKU: 1008293

This friendly, fun biography series focuses on the traits that made our heroes great--the traits that kids can aspire to in order to live heroically themselves. Each book tells the story of one of America's icons in a lively, conversational way that works well for the youngest nonfiction readers and that always includes the hero's childhood influences. At the back are an excellent timeline and photos. This volume features Billie Jean King, the world champion tennis player who fought successfully for women’s rights. From a young age, Billie Jean King loved sports—especially tennis! But as she got older, she realized that plenty of people, even respected male athletes, didn't take women athletes seriously. She set to prove them wrong and show girls everywhere that sports are for everyone, regardless of gender.

This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show 
Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.

Included in each book are:    
  • 
A timeline of key events in the hero’s history   
  • 
Photos that bring the story more fully to life   
  • 
Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorable
  • 
Childhood moments that influenced the hero    
  • 
Facts that make great conversation-starters    
  • 
A virtue this person embodies: Billie Jean King's determination opened the door for countless other athletes. 

by Brad Meltzer  (Author), Christopher Eliopoulos (Illustrator)
