The Horn Book Guide Review for Defining Moments: Super Athletes

Powered by high-action captioned photos filling a large portion of every page, these books highlight the athletic accomplishments of two sports stars, culminating in their gold medal performances in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

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 These books should not become outdated too quickly.
