Brett Favreby Sharlene Nelson, Ted Nelson
A biography tracing the personal life and football career of Brett Favre. Includes passing statistics.
Children's LiteratureYoung football fans will enjoy this story about the childhood and ball-playing career of Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. There are plenty of four-color photos and a nice graphic treatment of quotes and stats. The story ends a little abruptly, but then this is a biography of an athlete whose career is in progress. Favre is shown as someone who combines talent with hard work and who doesn't let difficulties keep him down. It is particularly interesting in its focus on the process of achieving success rather than just a litany of career highlights. For instance, we see Favre as a young boy playing football and imagining himself to be another great quarterback, Roger Staubach. There is a glossary with pronunciations and references for readers who want more information. And for readers interested in athletics beyond football, Brett Favre is one of a series of books about "Sports Heroes." 2001, Capstone Press, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Sally Heldrich

My favorite player in this book was Brett Favre, because he is the main character. I liked the part of the book when he won against the Cincinnati Bengals
