" Phil-a-del-phi-a FreedomI love, love, love youYes I do.(Yes, Elton John wrote this specificially about Billie Jean King -- that's the sound of her stomping towards the net, mad at the umpire!)Billie Jean King was (and is!) an amazing tennis star in her own right; all the more so when you realize the hurdles she had to overcome, even in post-game interviews, simply because "girls have to ___". Women can do whatever they put their minds to! " said.

"I learned a few things about Billie Jean King that I hadn't already known including her catch phrase "peanut butter" when she screwed something up or something bad happened. But I was more upset, as anyone should be, with how she was treated as she got started in the sport in terms of how she was questioned (versus a man in the sport) like asking her what necklace she was wearing instead of anything related to the game of tennis.

It's a significant picture book biography about women doing things in sports as they broke down barriers and paved the way for others (with a sentimental line about how Serena Williams- GOAT- greeted King in the stands when she one a major tournament) and how she kicked some male ass in the "Battle of the Sexes" because she simply worked harder.
" said.

" Fantastic first book on this important historical event! " said.
