Flying High: the Story of Gymnastics Champion Simone Biles by Meadows
A lyrical picture book biography of Simone Biles, international gymnastics champion and Olympic superstar.
Before she was a record-breaking, world-famous gymnast, Simone Biles spent time in foster care as a young child. Nimble and boundlessly energetic, she cherished every playground and each new backyard. When she was six years old, Simone’s family took shape in a different way: her grandparents, Ron and Nellie Biles, adopted her and her sister Adria. Simone was also introduced to gymnastics that same fateful year, launching a lifelong passion fueled by remarkable talent, sacrifice, and the undying support of her family.
From her early competitions to the height of her success as an Olympic champion, this is the story of the world’s greatest gymnast. For fans ofShe’s Got Thisby Laurie Hernandez andNadia: The Girl Who Couldn’t Sit Still.
