Read about contemporary celebrities. Australian and Aborigine runner Cathy Freeman carried the torch in the 2000 Olympic Games. Russian born Anna Kournikova was given her first tennis racket at the age of five. Kristi Yamaguchi overcame a serious physical problem with her foot to become a figure skater. This is just a taste of the information found in the 14 mini-biographies featured in this Reader. Each spotlights one of the world’s hottest professional female athletes. Basketball’s Cynthia Cooper, soccer’s Brandi Chastain, figure skater Tara Lipinski, cyclist Alison Sydor, and diver Laura Wilkinson are among the stars featured. Since most people enjoy reading about celebrities, even reluctant readers will be eager to take on these interesting one-page articles. A photo accompanies each bio to assist with visual recognition. Learning activities follow each reading to test comprehension, enrich vocabulary, and enhance following-directions skills. Relevant questions, word/definition matching, crossword puzzles, and fill-in-the-blanks are among the activities featured. Finally, there is a related research project for each story.
