Great book My fifth grader loves everything about basketball, so he loves reading this book. He is typically not much of a reader, so we have to find books that interest him. This book definitely caught his interest. He wouldn’t put it down. Great book about Michael Jordan with a lot of awesome facts and info. He learned a lot of things he hadn’t known. This entire series is awesome...definitely recommend this series.
Great book to get your kids interested in the GOAT! Book is great! It's not really a children's book. It is aimed at older, maybe 8 and up sort of age range. Has 10 chapters and really covers Jordan's whole youth and career in rapid succession. Today's youth won't know much about the real players so I got this for my son with hopes he will appreciate my favorite player. They used many famous images from his career and turned them into sort of sketch drawings which makes it look nice and interesting for the kiddo. Over all great book for kids.
Very interesting book The author explains show Jordan started his life playing in the youth baseball league and how then he switched to basketball. He also mentioned how made the college team and how he was very much disappointed with the coach for not putting him in the cover of the book. Also talks about how he reached the NBA and changed the basketball life. The author also talks about when he retired went to baseball game back started having injuries and then he just retired for good and became the owner of the Charlotte Hornets.
Great gift! This was a Christmas gift for a child I do not know. I did receive a passionate thank you note for acting as Santa's helper and purchasing this book from his/her list. he was particularly pleased with this book, which is why I rated it so highly.
Honest and accurate I’ve actually bought three copies of this book because I know it will be a hit in my classroom and I’ve already given away to as end of year gifts to students. I read myself in about 15 minutes and I felt it was very accurate and honest biography for kids. It is not make him out to be the perfect man and I appreciated that.
Love them.... After my son read more than 5 books from American history, I convinced him to read about Michael Jordan, the one and only... He was so amazed with the book. Great product!!!
