Basketball Belles

Basketball Belles: How Two Teams and One Scrappy Player Put Women's Hoops on the Map
By Sue Macy
Grades 2-6

The first line of this book says it all, "Nobody can ever accuse me of being a girly-girl." Hand this book to your girls who are tough athletes, the ones who wouldn't be caught dead reading Fancy Nancy. Basketball Belles tells about the first ever women's college basketball game that just happens to be between Berkeley and Stanford University (my husband's Alma Mater). These feisty women were breaking barriers and having a great time doing it!
