How to Solve a Problem: The Rise (and Falls) of a Rock-Climbing Champion, by Ashima Shiraishi and Ya


"Young readers will be inspired by the true story of Ashima Shiraishi, a teenager who started rock climbing when she was only six years old. As a climber, Ashima falls down repeatedly, and gets back up each time with new knowledge about how to stretch her body and navigate ridges as she scales boulders. To rock climbers, boulders are big problems that you make your own to solve, breaking them down into small parts. How to Solve a Problem shows how to embrace failure as valuable because it teaches us to look at a problem in a new way and with greater insight."
