I ve had lots of opportunities to visit our local libraries lately and I ve been reading uite a few picture books especially ones about women since it s Women s History Month I saw this book displayed and knew I just had to read itI must admit that I learned uite a bit about Nadia Comaneci from reading this picture book even though I was fairly aware of her career in gymnastics I was five years old when the Montreal Olympics were held and I am pretty sure that our family watched them I did not remember that she had accomplished such marvelous Olympic feats at only fourteen I also did not remember that the scoreboard was not calibrated to allow for a 100 score something no one had earned before Seeing a score of 10 must have been uite a shock to her at least the first time The narrative is engaging and it s not too long so the book is appropriate for younger children I appreciate that the author added an Afterword a Selected Bibliography and some websites that give the reader additional information about Ms Comaneci s life and her accomplishmentsI really liked the illustrations which were created using Ecoline and Clorex ink and colored pencil on Keaykolour paper We were familiar with Christine Davenier s illustrations from her work with Kimberly Willis Holt on the Piper Reed series as well as her work with Elissa Haden Guest on the Iris and Walter series
