Sixteen Years in Sixteen Seconds
(NPR Day-to-Day Summer Reading List 2005) How Sammy manages to become the first Korean-American to win an Olympic gold medal and a distinguished physician is a true story and a formidable illustration of what can happen when grit and grace combine forces to achieve a difficult goal. Children will be entranced by Lee’s illustrations, and the adults who read to them will enjoy hearing Yoo narrate Sammy’s story.
