Synopsis

Sport Stories Pack D by Lisa Trumbauer, Diana G. Gallagher, Chris Kreie, Eric Stevens

The boys and girls in these books face obstacles, and meet mental and social challenges as well. Readers will discover that an athlete's inner strength, persistence, and courage are just as important as a steady hand or a chance for a goal.
