When I was 5 or 6 years old, my parents put me in gymnastics because I was always hanging off the swing set & had a friend who was in it, too. I never competed & wasn‘t that great, but I had fun—and got to roll through a fiery hoop during programs for our parents.
I watched Mary Lou at the Olympics, idolized her, & read her book many times. When I saw this on Litsy, I decided to listen. I love watching Simone Biles & the foreword is by Mary Lou.

Great book to close out the decade with. I really enjoyed Simone‘s candor, and it‘s definitely appropriate for any kid able to read it. I‘d even recommend for any person trying to reach a goal!

Simone shares her (great) successes, but also the times she came up short and how those times eventually led to her being the GoAT of women‘s gymnastics.

I hope all Littens start 2020 off great! 🥂📚🎧

Scochrane26 I should read this. One of my fave books as a kid was my Mary Lou Retton book. I‘m not sure what happened to it, but I was in gymnastics at the time & was old enough to finally understand the olympics. 3w
Megabooks @Scochrane26 May Lou‘s forward in this book was great. I caught it for $1.99 on Amazon. 👍🏻👍🏻 3w

Simone Biles is amazing! She made hard decisions to achieve her dream, but I think it was worth it in the end. I loved all the great quotes at the beginning of each chapter. My favorite thing is that it shows how she stayed true to herself even through losses and wins. I respect her so much more now! Side note: I have finally overcome my fear that nonfiction is not good!!

jenniferajanes Great review! And hooray for believing that nonfiction books can be good reading! 10mo

I really enjoyed this short, sweet memoir of Simone Biles, gold medalist at the Olympics in gymnastics. I enjoyed her attitude and confidence as well as her humility. There's nothing earth-shattering in here but just an overall sweet memoir. I'm glad I listened to it.
