A bright star in the 2012 Olympic Games, Gabby Douglas won a gold medal as part of the American women’s gymnastics team and another in the all-round individual competition. Readers can trace her path to Olympic success through a short illustrated biography that offers basic information about her childhood, family, training as a gymnast, decision to leave home for training, and championship and Olympic wins. A page of “All-Around Amazing Facts” (birthday, nicknames, pets, hobbies) concludes the presentation. A typical double-page spread features a well-chosen color photo of Douglas, as well as a couple of paragraphs of large-print text. Pale pink with a subtle star pattern used for decorative notes, the pages are well designed for the audience. While older fans may want to try Douglas’ Grace, Gold, and Glory (2012), this book offers younger readers a closer look at the popular gymnast. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
