9781600782473: All You Can Be: Dream It, Draw It, Become It!

Curtis Granderson grew up on the south side of Chicago. He loved sports and was determined to become a successful athlete. But perhaps because both of his parents were teachers, he had an even stronger desire to succeed in the classroom. He loved learning for its own sake, and from an early age, the importance of education. Now an established Major League Baseball star, Curtis has not forgotten the lessons he learned growing up. These are lessons not only about the importance of education, but also about working hard to attain goals; lessons about character, integrity, and personal responsibility. In his book All You Can Be, Granderson shares these valuable lessons with his young fans. He has also invited fourth graders from across the state of Michigan to submit artwork that exemplifies their own goals, the best of which has been culled here to illustrate the themes of the book. This is not just a book for aspiring athletes, it is a book for any young dreamer about how he or she can develop the character to help them succeed, whether they want to be the next president of the United States, the best teacher in the country, or even the center fielder for the Detroit Tigers.

About the Author:

Curtis Granderson is a Major League Baseball player who has be the starting center fielder for the Detroit Tigers and the New York Yankees. In his short time as a professional baseball player he has established himself as one of the most electrifying talents in the game, both at the plate and while roaming center field. In 2007 he became one of only four players in baseball history—and the first since 1957—to record at least 20 doubles, 20 triples, 20 home runs, and 20 stolen bases in a single season. He is one of a handful of professional baseball players with a college degree, earning a bachelor’s degree in business marketing and business management at the University of Illinois, Chicago.

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
