Simone Biles (Little People, BIG DREAMS) (Hardcover)
Growing up in foster care, Simone’s gymnastics training was an anchor in her life. An energetic child, she loved to tumble and spin in the air at gymnastics class, and began her career as an athlete when she was just 14 years old. Astonishingly, at the age of 19, she had won four gold medals for the USA.
Despite the hardships, she has faced them all to become one of the greatest athletes of all time, and an advocate for mental health awareness.
