Wilma Rudolph (Little People Big Dreams)

by Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara Author and Amelia Flower Illustrator

In this book from the Little People Big Dreams series, author Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara explores the life of Wilma Rudolph, the sprinter and Olympic champion. Born in the segregated south into a family with 22 brothers and sisters, her life was never going to be easy. She contracted and recovered from polio, yet still went on to become an Olympic champion. With this cute picture book with quirky illustrations, teach your child or your students (ages 4-10) about her remarkable life, and inspire them to do what they are passionate about with just as much determination as Wilma Rudolph showed on the track.
