A skillfully told tale of perseverance and inner (and outer) strength, HER FEARLESS RUN is an uplifting book that had me cheering from page one. The emotion-filled yet approachable illustrations complement the text beautifully, bringing an extra depth to the story. This book is perfect for the classroom and home and is sure to inspire kids (and adults) to go for what they want to accomplish.

Her Fearless Run tells the story of Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to officially run the Boston Marathon. Kathrine loved to run, even though most people of her time believed women were incapable of long distance running. Young readers will be inspired to follow their dreams after reading Kathrine's story. Ellen Rooney's gorgeous illustrations complement the text perfectly. A must have for any classroom or library.
