Inviting readers to “Take a journey with this crew./ Come discover what they do,” this straightforwardly informative authorial debut by two-time Paralympic gold medalist Prevo introduces 15 disabled athletes of varying ages and backgrounds. Highlighted athletes include child dancer Annabelle Geib, diagnosed with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy at age one; Haiti-born WCMX champion Delmace Mayo, who sustained an early spinal cord injury; and partially paralyzed adaptive surfer Meira Va’a Nelson, raised in Western Samoa. For each athlete featured, a spread offers an introductory rhyming couplet, brief biography, and “Daily Challenge” and “Daily Joy.” Close-up, detailed illustrations by MBD against simple backgrounds highlight each individual engaging in their chosen activity or sport, often with adaptive equipment. An author’s note and preferred language note conclude this intersectionally inclusive portrait of the ever-growing world of adaptive sports.
