Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Not very long ago, many people said girls and women were too weak and delicate to play sports.

Fortunately, a lot of girls didn't listen. Trudy Ederle, Louise Stokes, Tidye Pickett, Julie Krone and Danica Patrick sure didn't. Trudy Ederle swam the English Channel, Louise Stokes and Tidye Pickett made it into the Olympics running track, Julie Krone became jockey, and Danica Patrick decided to drive Indie cars. Yes, She Can! tells the inspiring stories of these pioneers in sports. Thanks to them, everyone knows now that girls can do anything they want. Perfect for young athletes, ages 9-12.

Synopsis:

No other family has conquered football like the Manning's. It all started with the dad, Archie, a former pro quarterback who taught his sons Peyton and Eli to play football. Now, as the brothers have both grown into pro quarterbacks', they're creating a legacy of their own, starting with two stunning Super Bowl wins. This exciting Matt Christopher biography gives readers the story behind this famous football family, as well as thrilling recaps of some of the most awesome games in NFL history.
