Wilma: My First Wilma Rudolph (Little People, Big Dreams)

Wilma Rudolph was born into a family with 22 brothers and sisters, in the segregated South. She contracted polio in her early years and her doctors said she would never walk again. But Wilma persisted with treatment, and she recovered her strength by the age of 12. She earned the nickname "Skeeter" (mosquito) as she ran so fast. Wilma was in college when she went to the 1960 Olympics. She not only won gold in sprint events, but also broke world records with her sprinting skill. She had beaten polio to become an Olympic champion. She is a huge inspiration to many women in sports around the world.

The My First - Little People, BIG DREAMS series takes the biographies from the popular Little People, BIG DREAMS picture book series and adapts them for younger reader. All of them achieved incredible things, yet each began life as a child with a dream!

This is the simplified board book version of Wilma Rudolph's story; for the picture book for ages 5 to 8, visit Wilma Rudolph: Little People, Big Dreams.
