Game, Set, Match, Champion Arthur Ashe


This is a stunning portrait of a man who broke barriers in the tennis world. It teaches young readers not only about the life and perseverance of Arthur Ashe, but it also teaches them how wrong and hurtful it was to be separated because of one’s race. The illustrations by Kevin Belford put readers right on the court as balls are certain to sail past them and an afterword and chronology of Ashe’s life at the end stress how Ashe fought to overcome adversity and opened doors in his sport. A must have for any sports lover. . . . This Examiner Rates Game, Set, Match, Champion Arthur Ashe: 5 stars—Children’s Books on
