Happy International Women's Day! Today we're reading about two exceptional, insanely talented tennis players, Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert. Rivals, yet friends, their incredible drive, discipline, success and sportsmanship were inspiring to all.
Both text and illustrations exude emotion, momentum, spirit, and most importantly, heart. Martina & Chrissie: The Greatest Rivalry in the History of Sports was written by Phil Bildner and illustrated by Brett Helquist. Out on March 14 from Candlewick Press.
