Pre-Olympics Reading: Top 89 Books About Girls & Women in Sports
Handy reading resource website A Mighty Girl, "the world's largest collection of books and movies for smart, confident, and courageous girls," has a list up just in time for the Olympics!
Their top 89 (and counting!) picks include illustrated books for all ages like Playing to Win: The Story of Althea Gibson, and longer books for older readers like Let Me Play: The Story of Title IX: The Law That Changed the Future of Girls in America. You can sort by sport, too—they've got books to recommend on everything from horseback riding to yoga.
This is just the list to get us in the mood for the opening ceremonies tomorrow. Do you have any favorite books about women & girls in sports? Let us know in the comments!
