Cover To Cover …‘Who are Venus and Serena Williams’ (Terri's Book Review Sept. 13)

Yes, it was true that the girls’ father had “pushed their careers forward.” It was he who encouraged them to practice and play, but the girls “did the difficult work on the court.” And by the time they were in their mid-teens, “The Williams sisters were ready to take the professional tennis world by storm.”
You might think that everybody knows all about these two talented women, but author Buckley Jr. gives the story a more kid-friendly take here, with anecdotes that will delight young readers.
