Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It used to be that women and girls had to fight just to get a chance to compete on a track, or a soccer field, or basketball court. Now, female athletes are shattering the records in every sport and having a great time doing it. But where are the pictures of these great sportswomen, where are the words that describe their experiences?
Here. Play Like a Girl is a labor of love from two women who are devoted to women's sports. Together, they searched through thousands of photographs and read hundreds of books to find the perfect match of words and images to celebrate today's female athletes. Their book is an inspiring affirmation for every girl who plays a sport, and every one who would like to.
Sue Macy is the author of Winning Ways and A Whole New Ball Game, both of which were chosen as ALA Best Books for Young Adults and earned several best book of the year honors. Ms. Macy lives in Englewood, New Jersey.
Jane Gottesman is a sportswriter who is currently directing a book and exhibition project called "What Does a Woman Athlete Look Like," a photographic portrayal of sports in the lives of girls and women. She lives in Berkeley, California.
