Count on Me Sports: Powerful Stories of Perseverance in Sports

By Brad Herzog 

(Grades 3-8) Amazing true stories offer an engaging way of teaching perseverance to kids. Is perseverance fortitude, as shown by Anthony Robles, a wrestler with one leg who didn’t lose a single match? Maybe perseverance means the sort of toughness demonstrated by Gertrude Ederle, who swam across the English Channel when people thought only a man could accomplish such a feat. These and other stories teach kids the meaning and power of perseverance. Softcover, 112 pages.
