Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2–5—The Detroit Tigers center fielder offers life lessons to coincide with nine innings of baseball and includes stories from his own life to accompany them. His advice to young people ranges from choosing the right friends to playing with passion and valuing your family. The artwork was created by fourth graders from all over the state of Michigan as part of a contest sponsored by the Grand Kids Foundation. The illustrations show themes of community service, education, and family. Most of them were done in crayons and colored pencils. Full-color photographs from Granderson's childhood are also sprinkled throughout the book. The author's writing is age appropriate and easy to comprehend. His fans will enjoy this book and learn from his personal anecdotes. Educators and parents will also find value in this book as a tool to reach reluctant readers.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH

This remarkable young man has tapped the talents of 4th graders throughout the state of Michigan to make a wonderful reader/motivator for young students.
All his profits go directly to his foundation "Grand Kids".
Every elementary school library should have a copy of this model for student behavior.

I bought this book after seeing Granderson's interview on TV. It was more than I had hoped for. I have a little friend who is a boy in 4th grade who is smart, a good reader, quiet, and somewhat hesitant in conversation with others. He's been bullied. I bought the book for him as a holiday gift. After reading it myself, I am sure he will love it. The art is fantastic and is sure to be a boost to his thinking about his abilities. The book's lovely and well written. I'm buying another copy for my grandson who is now only 4 years old -- but he loves baseball. Thanks Curtis for writing what's sure to be a well-read book in our home for a long time to come.

I gave this book to my 14 and 8 year old grandsons, and when the 14 year old saw it, with great reverence he explained to the younger who Curtis Granderson is and the type of man he is. He knew all about the book and how special it is. I felt so proud of my grandson that this is the type of person who impresses him and hopefully will emulate. The seller sent it quickly and wrapped it beautifully. I couldn't be happier and am so pleased I picked a gift that meant so much to them.

Purchased for my 8 year old son who loves baseball. This book not only teaches you about baseball but about life, Struggles and obstacles that with the right "attitude" only "you" can overcome. Great book by an excellent person on and off the field. Definitely worth the purchase.
