About this title

Synopsis:

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Presents the inspiring stories of baseball players who overcame obstacles in the course of their careers due to race, religion, ethnicity, or gender, including Jackie Robinson, Hank Greenburg, Fernando Valenzuela, and Ila Borders.

From the Author:

My goal for the "Good Sports" series is to provide interesting and compelling stories of athletes that reflect positive values and life lessons young people can use on and off the field, and to motivate young people to read and write, which I believe can be life changing experiences; I know there were for me.  There is no doubt that reading is the best way for a young person to learn to write well, and that the experience of writing also teaches one how to think and learn.

I created the Good Sports series based on feedback I received from hundreds of young people, teachers and parents during school visits over the last decade, an experience I enjoy and hope to continue.  On these visits I learned that young readers want books about sports with plenty of action that also tell stories that have meaning to their lives and experience.  Parents want books they can feel good about giving their child, and teachers want books that can motivate children who are otherwise uninterested in reading to pick up a book and expand their world.  As a writer, there is nothing more gratifying than having a teacher tell me that my books have inspired a non-reader not only to read one of my books, but to ask for another book to read.  Each minute a child spends reading is one minute he or she is building toward a positive future.

The next two Good Sports titles are "Yes She Can! Women's Sports Pioneers," and "Soldier Athletes: Doing Their Duty." 

I look forward to hearing from teachers, parents and especially my readers.
