Description

Carey Price: How a First Nations Kid Became a Superstar Goaltender is a young adult novel from the Record Books Series from James Lorimer Publishers. This high interest and low vocabulary title is aimed at reluctant teen readers whose reading is at a grades 3 and 4 level. Recordbooks are non-fiction stories that help reluctant readers understand history and social issues through the lens of the true story of a sports hero. Showing the process of social change on issues like racism, diversity and conflict, these books engage and provide historical context by telling the often-heroic story of how an athlete or a team worked to change attitudes around them. This biography about an outstanding NHL goaltender with First Nation ancestry has short chapters with an easy to read format containing historical photographs as well as sports facts making it an ideal title for ESL and adult new readers. Silver Birch Award Non-Fiction.  Highly recommended. Winner Silver Birch Non-Fiction Award - 2019
