The Jake Maddox Girl Sports Series


by Jake Maddox (Author)

Book Cover for the Jake Maddox Girl Sports Series
Though the focus of the Jake Maddox Girls Sports is of course girls, these engaging sports stories by Jake Maddox are a hit with both boys and girls alike.

Jake Maddox Girl Sports stories are pumped-up, easy-to-read chapter books with an emphasis on athleticism, perserverance and fair play, making them perfect for reluctant or emerging readers with a passion for adventure and sport. The girls in these books face obstacles on the field, the court, the ice, or the gym mat, and meet mental and social challenges as well. Readers discover that an athlete's inner game, persistence, and courage are just as important as a steady hand or a chance for a goal. While these characters are not always perfect, they are always striving to do their best.

Written with the assistance of a host of popular children's authors and illustrators, and containing bonus material such as discussion questions and writing prompts, this series is an excellent educational resource that kids aged 7+ won't want to put down.

Recognition: Women's Sports Foundation Billie Award Nominee (2009)
