Children's Literature
This entry in the reader-friendly "Sports Heroes and Legends" series introduces figure skating great Michelle Kwan. The book begins with a prologue and then describes in chronological order the skater's early training and the challenges she overcame to excel. It ends with a description of what Kwan sees as her legacy to the sport. Boxed quotes from Kwan and coaches, plus interesting facts both of the sport and of Kwan's career are sprinkled throughout the text. Photos grouped at the center of the book cover some ten years of Kwan's life as a competitor on ice but there are none from her early years as a junior skater. In ten chapters with less than 100 pages of text, this paperback-sized hardbound will capture the interest of older readers and satisfy the need for easy-to-read biography for middle schoolers and upper elementary readers, as well. A rich selection of back matter includes stats, sources for all quotes, bibliography, websites, and an index. 2004, Lerner Sports, Ages 10 to 16.
—Susan Hepler, Ph.D.
