Publisher Description

Just in time for the Summer Olympics, this 33rd book in the New York Times bestselling biography series for ages 5 to 9 features one of the greatest runners in track and field history.

Before Jesse Owens was an Olympic gold medalist, he was a poor kid in a big family. When his speed caught the eye of one of his high school teachers, he began to train seriously and his running took him all the way to the Olympics, where he was against fierce competitors and racist assumptions, breaking world records while winning medals.

This friendly, fun biography series inspired the PBS Kids TV show Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum. One great role model at a time, these books encourage kids to dream big.

Included in each book are:  

A timeline of key events in the hero’s history  Photos that bring the story more fully to life  Comic-book-style illustrations that are irresistibly adorableChildhood moments that influenced the hero  Facts that make great conversation-starters  A virtue this person embodies: Jesse Owens’s drive and perseverance are highlighted
You’ll want to collect each book in this dynamic, informative series!
