Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
Nicknamed by his fans for hitting the first home-run ever made in the World's Series in the month of November, Derek Jeter is known as Mr. November. This slugger from Kalamazoo, Michigan, realized his childhood dream when he joined the New York Yankees. Jeter attracted Major League Baseball scouts in his early days of baseball by being named the best high school player in the country. By hard work and skill, Jeter was drafted by the Yankees, played in the minor leagues four years, was named the Rookie of the Year, and ultimately helped the Yankees win the World Series five different years. Students enthralled by baseball will enjoy reading about Jeter's remarkable statistics and what motivates this athlete. A timeline of the highlights of Jeter's career is found at the back of the book, as well as a glossary, an index, and resources for further study. This excellent Sports Illustrated Kids book is part of a series which includes biographies of football superstars Drew Brees and Peyton Manning, baseball superstar Albert Pujols, and basketball superstars Dwight Howard and Lebron James.
