She Persisted: Maria Tallchief Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Inspired by the number one New York Times best seller She Persisted by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger comes a chapter-book series about women who stood up, spoke up, and rose up against the odds - including Maria Tallchief!
In this chapter-book biography by award-winning author Christine Day, listeners learn about the amazing life of Maria Tallchief - and how she persisted.
Maria Tallchief loved to dance but was told that she might need to change her Osage name to one that sounded more Russian to make it as a professional ballerina. She refused and worked hard at dancing her best, becoming America's first prima ballerina. Many famous American ballets were created for Maria!
Complete with an introduction from Chelsea Clinton and a list of ways that listeners can follow in Maria Tallchief's footsteps and make a difference!
And don’t miss out on the rest of the books in the She Persisted series, featuring so many more women who persisted!
