Web: Simone Biles

For the last little bit I’ve been thinking about occasionally sharing websites that relate to the books or topics I’m writing about as well, so here is a new category: Website Wednesday.  I won’t be doing this every week, just as I feel there is something I want to share or remember for later.

Having just reviewed Simone Biles’ new autobiography, I thought I would start off by sharing a few of my favorite sites/articles about her.  There is a lot available, this is just the tip of the iceberg!

The New York Times has a great interactive journalistic piece, which, if it will load on your computer, does a nice job breaking down why exactly Simone Biles is the best gymnast in the world, with lots of videos and commentaries.

NPR has a short interview with her which I enjoyed.

ESPN has a rare interview with her mom that gave additional perspective on her life.

And of course, you can order the book or read the first chapter from her website.

I work in a library by day and parent the rest of the time. I am passionate about good books representing the full spectrum of human diversity for every age group and reading level. This blog is my attempt to help parents, educators, and librarians find the best children's books authored by or featuring characters of color.
