Game ChangersAtterns and the figures of the women themselves are full of energy speed and tension” Shelf Awareness starred review “A beautifully composed biography of the Williams sisters Serena and VenusThis is one biography that will struggle to stay on the shelf” School Library Connection Venus and Serena Williams are two of the greatest tennis players of all time Some say they’re two of the greatest athletes of all time Before they were world famous they were little girls with big dreams Venus and Serena Williams Two peas in a pod Best friends Sisters Six days a week they awoke before the sun came up to practice their ser. It's about time that the story of these two talented African American athletes and groundbreaking women was told and it seems as though 2018 was the year for that to happen i'm not sure what took so long for publishers to realize that their story was gold but this one describes their formative years and some of the challenges the sisters had to overcome on the way to becoming world class tennis champions The lively text and the illustrations created with cut paper pencil and acrylics draw readers' attention to the sisters' story making it clear that while winning mattered it wasn't everything Above all the girls were sisters and even when they competed against each other they never forgot that being uick to celebrate the other one's victories The images are filled with motion and power and rely on bright eye catching colors that highlight the physicality of these women as well as the uniueness of their beaded hairdos Pair this one with Howard Bryant's Sisters and Champions for two different approaches to the same story I like them both and can certainly see many young girls and boys drawing inspiration from the story of the Williams sisters This is a must have for a classroom library
