Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 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

    Great Advice For Kids

    I bought this for my 6-year-old grandson who just started Little League this year. He's also seen Curtis on TV in a Yankee game. The drawings are excellent and easy for little kids to relate to, and the writing is geared to a young age without talking down to them. Curtis puts his advice in the context of his own life, so it's more understandable to those without a great deal of life experience.

    Inspirational read for kids and adults

    Granderson tells his down to earth story of his childhood and how he became a NY Yankee. His message is clear....be positive and keep trying no matter what. His family paid a huge factor in his success. I enjoyed how young students in New York had a competition and illustrated the saga. I have read this book to all ages at the school I volunteer in and my grandchildren all have copies.

    Good read for youngsters playing sports of all kinds!

    I bought this for my 9-year-old and 8-year-old grandsons who play baseball. I saw Curtis on TV and ordered it right away for Christmas! There are some really good lessons for them ... 9 in all! I loved the way Curtis spoke to young readers, and I enjoyed the pictures from the kids in NYC. Good job! ... Mom Mom D
