With all the best elements of Kid Presidents--colorful illustrations, kid-relatable subjects, true tales of overcoming adversity, battling back bullies, etc.--Kid Athletes tells true tales from the childhoods of a wide range of athletes. Did you know... Babe Ruth was so incorrigible he was sent to reform school at the age of seven. Historians now think the Babe may have suffered from attention deficit disorder, which contributed to his wild, hyperactive nature--and may have helped him develop his almost supernatural ability to hit a baseball. Danica Patrick learned to conquer her fears and indulge her need for speed on the go-kart track before stepping up to the big leagues of road-racing, flying in the face of her competition who claimed that "girls can't drive" Muhammad Ali (aka Cassius Clay) got in his first fight after a thief stole his bicycle when he was twelve. When little Cassius vowed to "whup" the kid who'd swiped his wheels, a kindly police officer offered to give him boxing lessons. And a heavyweight legend was born. The lineup subjects is exciting and diverse: female athletes like multi-sport sensation Babe Didrikson Zaharias, jockey Julie Krone, and gymnast Gabby Douglas; African-American legends like Jackie Robinson and Michael Jordan; international stars like Yao Ming and Lionel Messi; and Native American icons like Jim Thorpe. With Doogie Horner's whimsical illustrations bringing every goal, touchdown, and championship to life, this book is a slam dunk for young readers.

* NEW YORK TIME BEST SELLER* Imagine yourself a thirteen-year-old hundreds of miles away from home, in a strange city, and your mom leaves you at a bus station parking lot and drives off into the night with her lover. That’s the real life story of country music star Jimmy Wayne. It’s a miracle that Jimmy survived being hungry and homeless, bouncing in and out of the foster care system, and sleeping in the streets. But he didn’t just overcome great adversity in his life; he now uses his country music platform to help children everywhere, especially teenagers in foster care who are about to age out of the system. Walk to Beautiful is the powerfully emotive account of Jimmy’s horrendous childhood and the love shown him by Russell and Bea Costner, the elderly couple who gave him a stable home and provided the chance to complete his education. Jimmy says of Bea, “She changed every cell in my body.” It also chronicles Jimmy’s rise to fame in the music industry and his Meet Me Halfway campaign: his walk halfway across America, 1,700 miles from Nashville to Phoenix, to raise awareness for foster kids. Join Jimmy on his walk to beautiful and see how one person really can make a difference. ENDORSEMENTS “If your story could use a better chapter, take inspiration from Jimmy’s.” —Max Lucado, New York Times Best-Selling Author “It reads like a movie to me, and if so, I’ll be the first one in a seat to see it.” —Dolly Parton “Walk to Beautiful will open your eyes to the hurting people around you.” —Frank Harrison, Chairman and CEO, Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated; Chairman and Cofounder, With Open Eyes
