School Library Journal Review for Defining Moments: Super Athletes
Concentrating on impressive 2008 Olympic moments, these books also feature memorable events in each star’s life. Some readers will relate when they learn that Phelps’s mother was told that because Michael had ADHD he would “never be able to focus on anything,” or that James moved seven times in a year when he was five years old. Impressive camera angles used in the color photos provide dynamism to the narratives. A “Just the Facts” section adds additional information about each athlete, and a closing time line places their Olympic accomplishments in context. These books should not become outdated too quickly.
