Jim Thorpe's Bright Path
By Lori Calabrese Writes!
After reading this picture-book biography, I learned that Thorpe’s accomplishments meant much more than being a great sports star. . . . Overcoming obstacles and perseverance is the main theme of this inspirational tale. The story is not only an inspiration, but also a testament to what his generation had to go through. Nelson’s illustrations illuminate Jim’s path and I think the textures in each one are pretty unique. — <a href=”http://loricalabrese.blogspot.com/” target=”_blank>Lori Calabrese Writes</a>
