Amazing true stories offer an engaging way of teaching perseverance to kids. Is perseverance fortitude, as shown by Anthony Robles, a wrestler with one leg who didn't lose a single match? Maybe perseverance means the sort of toughness demonstrated by Gertrude Ederle, who swam across the English Channel when people thought only a man could accomplish such a feat. These and other stories teach kids the meaning and power of perseverance.

The Count on Me: Sports series is a collection of dramatic tales of character in action, bringing together exciting sports history, real-life examples of sports and character building, and lively storytelling. Each book features twenty true stories of athletic challenge, triumph, and sometimes heartbreak. All the books explore a wide variety of sports, with historical and contemporary episodes featuring male and female athletes from around the world.
