Kid Athletes: True Tales of Childhood from Sports Legends Audiobook

Kid Athletes: True Tales of Childhood from Sports Legends

Author: David Stabler Narrator: Pete Cross Release Date: September 2019

Forget the gold medals, the championships, and the undefeated seasons. When all-star athletes were growing up, they had regular-kid problems just like you. Baseball legend Babe Ruth was such a troublemaker that his family sent him to reform school. Race-car champion Danica Patrick fended off bullies who told her "girls can't drive." And football superstar Peyton Manning was forced to dance the tango in his school play. Kid Athletes tells all of their stories and more. Other athletes include Billie Jean King, Jackie Robinson, Yao Ming, Gabby Douglas, Tiger Woods, Julie Krone, Bruce Lee, Muhammad Ali, Bobby Orr, and Lionel Messi!

He conquered each of these seemingly impossible feats and showed the world the power of a little magic. Fun and fast-paced, Harry Houdini tells the story of the curious boy who became the world's greatest magician and reveals how Houdini did some of his most stunning escapes.

Amelia Earhart

Author: Andrew Prentice Narrator: Elizabeth Cottle Release Date: August 2019

Before Amelia Earhart (1897-1939) became a world-famous pilot, she was a little tomboy from Kansas with a taste for adventure. When she visited an airfield and took a short plane ride, she knew she had to be a pilot. She signed up for flying lessons and cropped her hair short so that the other pilots would take her seriously. She became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. With each flight she took and each record she broke, Amelia became more and more of a celebrity. Her final flight was intended to be a trip around the whole world, but her plane disappeared after takeoff-and her disappearance is still a mystery today. Inspirational and full of adventure, Amelia Earhart tells the story of the feminist icon who changed the world of aviation.

The inspiring autobiography of NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who helped launch Apollo 11. As a young girl, Katherine Johnson showed an exceptional aptitude for math.

In the early 1950s, Katherine was thrilled to join the organization that would become NASA. She worked on many of NASA's biggest projects including the Apollo 11 mission that landed the first men on the moon.

ما أعرفه على وجه اليقين

Author: كتاب صوتي Narrator: هند وسام Release Date: June 2019

'ما الأشياءُ التي تعرفينَها على وجهِ اليقينِ؟' كانَ هذا هو السؤالَ الذي طرحَهُ الناقدُ السينمائيُّ 'Gene Siskel' على 'Oprah' في أحدِ اللقاءاتِ التي أُجريَتْ معَها، وأصبحَ السؤالُ ملهمًا لها لتكتبَ عمودًا في مجلةِ 'O, the Oprah'، ليُصبحَ بعدَ ذلكَ أساسَ كتابِها 'ما أعرفُهُ على وجهِ اليقينِ'. تُلقي هذه الومضاتُ الضوءَ على أوقاتٍ عصبيةٍ ومهمةٍ في فترةِ طفولةِ 'Oprah' وفي فترة نضوجِهَا على حدِّ السواءِ، وتبدأُ من حَمْلِ والدتها بِها مرورًا بالمخاوفِ الصحيةِ التي أرَّقتْها في منتصفِ الليلِ وتنتهي بكيفيةِ تميزِها لتقهرَ العنصريةَ. لأسبابٍ واضحةٍ، تترُكُ المصاعبُ التي يمرُّ بها الفردُ أثرًا طويلَ المدى عليهِ. ثمَّ يأتي السؤالُ: كيفَ تقفُ على قدميكَ بعدَ تجربةٍ مروعةٍ؟ كيفَ تتعلمُ حبَّ نفسِكَ؟ إن 'Oprah' لمْ تتغلبْ على المصاعبِ التي وَاجهتْها في بدايةِ حياتِها فحَسْبُ؛ بل حولَتْها إلى نقاطِ قوةٍ! وهذا ما ستقدمُهُ لكَ هذهِ الومضاتُ: ستكشِفُ لكَ عنِ الطريقةِ التي تستغلُّ بها تجارِبَكَ لتُحقِقَ التميُّزَ.
