3/10/21 Words for Wednesday/Tree of Life Mama Picture Book of the Week: Defying Hitler by Nel Yomtov

The Tree of Life Mama picture book of the week is the graphic novel above, Defying Hitler: Jesse Owens’ Olympic Triumph by Nel Yomtov. I love this book! I found it at my public library. it’s the amazing story of how Jesse Owens competed to win 4 gold medals in the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin, Germany. I was in utter wonderment at how persistent Jesse was. I love how this book has so many pictures, because it is a graphic novel. I read it aloud to my 11-year -old soon over two nights. He loved it so much that when I put a bookmark in it for the first night, he pleaded for more. I think you will love it!
