eBook Time For Kids: Jesse Owens (Time for Kids: Biographies) download

For example, when he was born in 1913 on a cotton farm in Alabama, Jesse was actually named James Cleveland Owens.

For example, when he was born in 1913 on a cotton farm in Alabama, Jesse was actually named James Cleveland Owens. His first grade teacher misheard him when he told her his name; she thought he said "Jesse". Young readers will find the magazine format of the book appealing and easy to read.

All of the books in this series are wonderful children's biographies. I have found that these books contain enough information and details for the children to learn of these individuals and their works without being boring. The photos are excellent and help to keep the kids attention while giving them excellent visuals of the person and time era they lived in. My daughter, age 9, will sit and read one of these in about 30 minutes. She is able to then write an adequate book report from the information.

I purchased several of the Time Life For Kids books and they are great.

Jesse Owens ran like the wind. With his high-stepping gait, he almost flew past his competitors, setting track-and-field records in the process. His exceptional performance at the 1936 Olympics won Jesse admirers from all over the world and made his name synonymous with athletic excellence.

My son is autistic and we are starting to read more grown up books. He loves these series of books, especially the ones about famous athletes. Please keep them coming!
It was 1936. The Olympic Games were being held in Berlin, Germany, with Nazi leader Adolph Hitler in power. The "superhuman" German athletes were destined to dominate the competition. But U.S.A.'s track-and-field star Jesse Owens set out to prove them wrong. The Europeans had heard of the 5-foot 10-inch, 165-pound athlete whose famous high-stepping running style made it seem like he was "dancing on hot coals." Owens broke three world records during that Olympics - in the broad jump, 200-meter race, and the 400-meter relay. He became the first American ever to win four gold medals at a single Olympics. This biography by the magazine editors of TIME for Kids is filled with fascinating facts. For example, when he was born in 1913 on a cotton farm in Alabama, Jesse was actually named James Cleveland Owens. His first grade teacher misheard him when he told her his name; she thought he said "Jesse". Young readers will find the magazine format of the book appealing and easy to read. It also includes historical and contemporary photographs, educational sidebars on topics like Olympics History and the Great Depression, and an interview with Olympic gold medalist Michael Johnson (Track-and-Field). Johnson calls Owens one of the greatest and credits him with "paving the way for all other African American athletes." Recommended for sports fans of ages!
