Synopsis:

Once upon a time, American children couldnand#8217;t borrow library books. Reading wasnand#8217;t all that important for children, many thought. Luckily Miss Anne Carroll Moore thought otherwise! This is the true story of how Miss Moore created the first childrenand#8217;s room at the New York Public Library, a bright, warm room filled with artwork, window seats, and most important of all, borrowing privileges to the worldand#8217;s best childrenand#8217;s books in many different languages.

Synopsis:

Before Wilma Rudolph was five years old, polio had paralyzed her left leg. Everyone said she would never walk again. But Wilma refused to believe it. Not only would she walk again, she vowed, she'd run. And she did run--all the way to the Olympics, where she became the first American woman to earn three gold medals in a single olympiad. This dramatic and inspiring true story is illustrated in bold watercolor and acrylic paintings by Caldecott Medal-winning artist David Diaz.
