Kid Athletes: True Tales of Childhood from Sports Legends by David Stabler
Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
Genre: non-fiction, middle grade
Review: Although a little too inspirational for my tastes, these vignettes about the childhoods of famous athletes are also interesting stories about the families and educations of the athletes. Young sports fans will enjoy learning more about their heroes, and the short format of each story will also appeal to reluctant readers.
