Fishman, Jon Michael Phelps 32 pgs. Lerner, 2017. $8.99. Content: G.
Readers discover the recording setting Olympic Gymnast Michael Phelps. Readers will discover how hard he worked to train, his childhood of swimming, and his accomplishments. Filled with well-chosen photographs and includes a glossary of important words.
This is a well written great biography. I don’t get a ton of request for swimming books or biographies of swimmers, but during the Olympics I do get quite a few athlete requests. I would add this my Olympics section.
