Well designed book composed of small capsules for a very wide ranging array of female athletes/groundbreakers. My only wish would have been to have actual pictures includes in the work. Nonetheless an inspiring work!

There is quite a choice of these kind of books around they are the junior equivalent of the coffee table book. These are books that you can dip in and out of with stories about leading sports women. It highlights sportswomen from the 1800’s to present day. I like the fact that readers will get to know sportswomen they recognise and many they will never have heard of. Each story focuses on the determination it takes to succeed a great message for any young sports person. The book is beautifully published with lots of pictures and clear and concise writing. Dotted throughout the book is information on sporting statistics and graphics showing muscle and bone anatomy. This would make a great Christmas gift for any budding sports person.
I am writing this review in the hopes that the author sees it-I love the stories. The one pagers are perfect to read to my daughter at bedtime, and I am learning so much about these amazing women! But, it's hard to read. If you ever do a reprint, it would be great to have more visual contrast between the written words, and the page. The dark background makes it hard to read. I would also spread the text over the two pages-starting halfway down the first page, enabling you to increase the font size. The illustrations aren't my speed, but that's just a personal preference.
