A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Babe struggles with prejudices against women.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Babe struggles with prejudice against women. Written with verve that matches Babe's personality, this true story will encourage young readers, especially those interested in sports.
Is It Any Good?
This uplifting biography of the one of the 20th century's greatest female athletes will inspire many kids who love sports and any form of competition. The book sparkles as it lets Babe's exuberant personality shine through. Plenty of pictures and quotations help the text come alive for young readers. A must-read, especially for athletic teens.
Girls who still struggle for acceptance as athletes will be amazed by this true story of a woman so athletically gifted and so determined to win that she blazed a way through prejudices far worse than girls experience today. Russell Freedman keeps the book moving with frequent smart-aleck quotations from Babe and those who knew her. He inserts sports statistics into the narrative, and includes many black-and-white photographs, along with an extensive index, background sources, and an afterword. It all adds up to a book nearly as lively as Babe herself.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
