Book - Jackie Joyner-Kersee

Jackie Joyner Kersee - Superwoman by Margaret Goldstein & Jennifer Larson
This is a very informative juvenile non-fiction accounting of the life, the goals and the gold that Jackie Joyner Kersee is famous for. Proving that it doesn’t matter where you come from, with desire, dedication and determination, her, her brother and her sister-in-law were able to score in life and in the Olympics as some of the greatest track and field athletes of America. Being named the “First Lady of Sports” and “The World’s Greatest Female Athlete” never made her forget her past, she still strives to help kids in similar situations with her foundation. The short chapters and rapid fire of information made this informative and fun to read. Great source of information for anyone interested in the basics about Jackie Joyner and her gold.
