Little People, Big Dreams: Wilma Rudolph by Isabel Sanchez Vegara & Amelia Flower. Let’s introduce the youngest dreamers to the incredible life of the remarkable sprinter and Olympic champion with the Little People, Big Dreams: Wilma Rudolph book.

Wilma 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. At school, Wilma showed a talent for basketball and sprinting, earning 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.

Thank you so much for going the extra mile to make this gift extra special. Your company is exactly what I was looking for and I am so grateful that I was told about Make Believe Co. So many places in SA do not offer such beautiful, high quality, long lasting toys. I will 100% be ordering from you guys again for any little one I know.
