Super excited to introduce the first female athlete in the The Middle School Rules series, WNBA superstar Skylar Diggins.
Books for elementary and middle school readers usually don’t target boys and girls; usually one or the other. But, for me, the decision was a no-brainer.
Female athletes have inspirational childhood stories and lessons worth telling!
None more so than Skylar.
