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.

Great life lessons. I really think that Mr Granderson is an excellent role model. Just wish he would have stayed with the tigers.
