America's Champion Swimmer: Gertrude Ederle
Trudy Ederle loved to swim, and she was determined to be the best. At seventeen Trudy won three medals at the 1924 Olympics in Paris. But what she planned to do next had never been done by a woman: She would swim across the English Channel in fourteen hours and set a world record.

I enjoyed reading about Gertrude Enderle's feat of being the first woman to cross the English Channel. While the text was simple, it was engaging. A good simple book for a younger reader.
Review: America's Champion Swimmer: Gertrude EderleUser Review - Goodreads
k-4/5 Great story about a woman who broke swimming records at a time that women were referred to as the weaker sex. Nice pacing, good beginning with her as a child, and great illustrations pull the reader through.
