The first Sunday in August is your chance to show your appreciation for that unique bond only sisters can understand. August 4, 2019 is National Sisters Day! My sister Laurie, AKA the Goose, will definitely be getting a call from me when I get off work today. She's a librarian and a former tennis player, so I know she'll appreciate the book I'm highlighting for this holiday's blog.
Sisters: Venus and Serena Williams by Jeanette Winter (04/02/19)
Before they were famous tennis stars, Venus and Serena Williams were sisters with big dreams growing up in Compton, California. In the early mornings, they head to the tennis courts, clean up debris, and practice. They compete in their first tournament and they both win. From there, the girls’ trophy collection grows and grows. Despite adversity and health challenges, the sisters become two of the greatest tennis players of all time. This inspiring story of sisterhood, hard work, and determination is perfect for budding athletes or any young reader with a big dream.
