Usain Bolt (Amazing Athletes) by Jeff Savage –ADVISABLE

 Savage, Jeff Usain Bolt (Amazing Athletes) 32 pgs. Lerner Classroom, 2013. $7.95  Content: Language: G (0 swears);  Mature Content: G ;  Violence: G.
Usain Bolt grew up in Jamaica. He really wanted to play cricket but was encouraged to run and has been setting world records ever since. He celebrates his wins with his signature Bolt pose.
This was an enjoyable biography of a modern athlete! I love that photographs of his family and hometown are shown. It talks about its setbacks and comebacks! A great success story that is interesting and well presented.
