    Absolutely loved this non fiction picture book about girls who did exactly what they were told not to do As a sassy lady myself I love the confidence and courage these girls display Even so I love how this book introduces today's young people to a world otherwise unknown My two boys ages 10 and 11 really found this book fascinating and it held there attention throughout The text is a bit long for a picture book but uality information is there

    Fantastic introduction to females defying expectations pushing against barriers overcoming obstacles and ultimately getting Title IX legislation passed Recognized a few of the athletes but many I'd never heard of in a wide range of sports Don't skip the timeline because there are additional athletes highlighted and some good uotes by men and women that are worthy of chewing on The author's note also tackles what we mean by play like a girl and turns upside down this comment which is typically used in a derogatory wayI'd read this aloud or book talk and leave to be snatched up by readers in grades 3 6Some beautiful themes in this book that you might explore with students– • Women or people or athletes ; overcoming obstacles• Women defying society’s expectations• Women refusing to conform to unfair rules and persevering• Women using the government and legislation as a tool to gain additional civil rights• Change in society takes time and perseverance• To “play like a girl” really means “competing at one’s utmost capacity while empowering others to do the same”A couple of other thoughts you might consider if you’re planning to use in the classroom –• The audience for this book is clearly girls The first page includes the statement “Girl you are amazing” What does that mean for boys in the audience? I wouldn’t look at this as a detractor I’d use that as a prompt for discussion “Is this still an important book for boys to read or listen to? Why?”• You might share a little background information on the phrase athletic programs funded by the US government which is in the second sentence on the second page of the book You might talk about how tax dollars go to fund school athletics; you might also briefly discuss other options for athletics little league programs park district programs and so forth Not a lot Just enough so that students have some background information on how sports in their communities are funded This is a key idea in the book• READ ALOUD TWICE??? I'd read aloud the book all the way through just give students a chance to get the gist of the book as a whole before you begin to analyze the content and the author's craft Or stop in just a few places and ask students to turn and talk with a prompt like What are you thinking? You might do this after reading the second page that includes the uote I started this review with • During another lesson return to this book and read aloud again – but this time pose a clear purpose for listening like “What did you just learn on this page about a woman overcoming an obstacle in sports?” and “Why is that important to the big ideas in the book?” • OR STOP AND DISCUSS SOME OF GONZALES’ LANGUAGE asking “What does the author mean by?” Lots of potential here Adjust the examples based on the needs of your students A few examples – o “The race to breaking barriers was under way” o “People feared that active women would develop wild eyed jut jawed ‘bicycle face’ destroying their feminine appeal” o “Unashamed and self assured courageous female athletes pressed on even when folks tried to suash their competitive spirit” That sentence is loaded with rich vocabulary and food for thought o “Placing limits on the intellectual aspirations of women should be alien to the very basic concepts of this nations” Edith Green Congresswoman said o OR post some of the uotes by people listed on the timeline for students to consider• THIS TOPIC BEGS STUDENTS TO DO further RESEARCH – Generate a list of uestions worthy of further research or independent inuiry Students might ask uestions about specific women athletes in the book or not or about issues related to the themes in this book like those of the US Women’s Soccer Team’s attempting to receive eual payI'd PARTNER THIS BOOK WITH TITLES LIKE Billie Jean How Tennis Star Billie Jean King Changed Women’s Sports Rockliff 2019Trudy's Big Swim How Gertrude Ederle Swam the English Channel and Took the World by Storm Macy 2017Her Fearless Run Kathrine Switer's Historic Boston Marathon Chaffee 2019Game Changers The Story of Venus and Serena Williams Cline Ransome 2018Yusra Swims Abery 2020

    This is a for star There a woman I have already heard of and some I haven'tMy only complaint is that is clearly written for and to girls and woman so even though information is good I am afraid it might alienate boys

    For younger readers an introduction to the history of women and athletics those who broke barriers that may surprise children like women are not supposed to ride bicycles or wear pants when horse back riding It is fun to learn some early history like women were not allowed in the ancient Olympic Games but they defied the rules and ran footraces in private festivals for Hera ueen of the gods It covers some history of the eual rights movement that challenged educational athletic and financial discrimination with federal funds leading at last to the Title IX law mandating eual treatment Further examples of euality continued to occur like the challenge to allow girls to play Little League baseball Unfortunately it does not include recent conflicts still occurring within the athletic world for women Rebecca Gibbon's illustrations fill the pages with all kinds of girls doing what they love from bloomers expected in the early women's basketball games to the final wonderful double page spread celebrating amazing girls in all kinds of activities with today's expected clothing There is a timeline that offers information for further research One fun thing is that it adds a few uotations from the athletes in their special moments Thanks to Charlesbridge for the copy

  9. Kristen Kristen says:
