Babe Didrikson Zaharias Poster

Babe Didrikson Zaharias Poster
Product Description

Mildred "Babe" Didrikson Zaharias was a woman with unending persistence which led her to achieve many honors in the world of sports, some not ever accomplished by any other person, man or woman. She won three Olympic medals in Track and Field; two gold and one silver. Babe not only did track and field, but also other sports such as basketball where she was named "All-American" three times.

The Associated Press also named Babe "Woman Athlete of the Year" six times, a feat never again achieved by anyone. But even all of these accomplishments couldn't prevent her from getting cancer, almost ending her ability to play sports. Babe, however, was not one to go down without a fight. She managed to recover from cancer, and shortly after returned to playing golf, competing in and winning tournaments, and then went on to found the Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA).

While many of us may not have the natural talent that Babe had, we can certainly aspire to attain her level of resolve. With this poster, your child can appreciate that even with all of her talent, what really made Babe great was her passion, commitment, and the way she never gave up, no matter what the obstacle.

"Imagine a doll that was not only fun to play with, but was also represented a real hero - a real role model for girls! Girls Explore has found a way to make doll play fun and educational! We gave this Amelia Earhart doll to a second grader who enjoyed the doll and book so much she took it to school. Her teacher, in turn, used the doll and the book as a lesson in class."  Grandparents Magazine™

Great alternative to princesses and barbies "After scouring the internet, I came across this product & I know my daughter will love it. I don't like most girl's dolls, because they usually promote our culture's obsession with beauty. I was so glad to find this - finally a heroine my daughter can learn about, admire, and hopefully be inspired by. Thanks for a great product." – K. Hansen

Fun & Educational "My daughter (7) and I love this! She chose Amelia Earhart for the topic of her school report. I was looking for books she could read for research and came across this gem. The doll & compass make the book even better."  – JudyV

 "I like highlighting women and bringing to the forefront women who have done exceptional things that many people might not know about. I like the idea that it is centered around strong women...and it sends a powerful message to young girls." Learning Magazine

 "My daughter learned about Amelia Earhart at school. I was surprised when my daughter came home one day and was so excited to tell me about what she had learned about Amelia. She said, "mom, did you know Amelia Earhart was a pioneer?" I said "yes, she was." Then she went on to tell me about Amelia's accomplishments. I knew I had to get anything Amelia Earhart for her birthday. After searching online, this was the only place I could find an Amelia Earhart doll. I know my daughter is going to love her." – Priscilla

"The electronic version of the supplies is very effective and helpful...Very easy to follow. I like the idea of expanding the collection. This is an excellent start." The librarians at TST (Tompkins Seneca Tioga) BOCES
