Her Anger And Disappointment Simmeranger and disappointment simmer of her but instead she chose to compete in secret wearing a sweatshirt to hide that she was a girl The other runners along the way actually provided support and ncouragement as did many of the onlookers perhaps realizing that they were seeing history in the making Despite xcruciating pain caused by her new running shoes Bobbi finishes the race The text captures the attitude toward women at that time as well as Bobbi s persistence and love for running and the illustrations created in oil and collage with tissue paper and patterned papers with the use of stamps that were with the use of stamps that were leave readers with the feeling that they are running right alongside this determined woman who paved the way for others The book closes with an image of Bobbi flying across the top of a grassy knoll followed by others like her and with the names of other marathoners listed in the grass against a yellow background The Afterword reveals that it took race officials thirty years before her accomplishment was acknowledged This is such a wonderful story to share with others who may doubt themselves or not know how to challenge rules that seem unfair It fits perfectly into a text collection of feminists strong women and individuals who made a difference in the world around them I m xcited to add it to my collection and share it with my students Although I am personally not at all into sports and have actually always uite despised jogging mostly because I happen to find running for the sake of running boring and monotonous in and of itself I have indeed found Annette Bay Pimentel s Girl Running Bobbi Gibb and the Boston Marathon both inspiring and The DOS encouraging And while I do remain majorly and personally offended that Bobbi Gibb was not allowed to run on her school s track team and that she could not officially race in the Boston Marathon simply because of her gender and I did laugh majorly derisively at the silly and arrogantly wrong comments on the rejection letter Bobbi receives when she tries tonter the Boston Marathon that women are supposedly too weak and physically unable to run twenty six miles considering what we have to put up with during pregnancy and childbirth and that until the advent of modern appliances housework was generally almost Against All Odds entirely physical in nature reuiring much strength and stamina and as much so as farming did for men in my humble opinion I also find it wonderful and have delightfullynjoyed how in Girl Running Bobbi Gibb and the Boston Marathon when Bobbi secretly joins the race that the majority of the officially registered and Thus Male Runners Are male runners are only supportive and cheer Bobbi on but also vow to protect her from being thrown out of the race An in many ways truly superb combination of text and images with Micha Archer s rich and Sleep, Circadian Rhythms, and Metabolism expressively colourful accompanying pictures both mirroring and sometimesven Treasons, Stratagems, And Spoils expanding on Annette Bay Pimentel sncouraging and uplifting narrative and yes the only reason I have chosen to give four and not yet five stars to Girl Running Bobbi Gibb and the Boston Marathon is that on a personal and Payment Due emotional level I do find it both annoying and actually rather majorly infuriating that in the otherwisexcellent afterword Annette Bay Pimentel does not identify by his full name the director of the Boston Marathon who refused to acknowledge Bobbi Gibb and her achievement for yes indeed he does in my opinion truly deserve to be personally identified and with this also shamed as I absolutely do not believe that he should be allowed to remain anonymou. At it's a man's race and that women are just not capable of running such a long distance So what does Bobbi do She bravely sets out to prove the naysayers wrong and show the world just what a girl can do. .
