Nonfiction Monday

Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by The Children's War.

My selection is "Athletes with Disabilities" written by Deborah Kent.

This book is written for older readers - grades 5-7. Kent describes the ways in which people with different abilities are able to compete in sports and the adaptations in sports to make them available to people with particular challenges. Kent includes many professional athletes such as Jim Abbott - Major League Baseball Pitcher and Diana Golden Brosnihan - Olympic Skier.

The book includes a Timeline, Glossary, Bibliography for further reading, Organizations, Online sites and an Index.
