Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Meet LeBron James, NBA superstar. Raised by a single mother who worked hard to make ends meet, James' early years were filled with instability. Moving, changing schools, making new friends again and again affected James. In 4th grade he missed more than half the school year; in 5th grade, his mother agreed to let him live with a classmate's family. This was a life-changing move for James. He was back on track at school. More importantly, his classmate's father recognized James' athletic talents and taught him the fundamentals of basketball. In high school, James became a basketball phenomenon and one who had a national following. By 2003 there was no question that the number one draft pick for the National Basketball Association would be LeBron James. His life off the court seems to be as admirable as his life on the court. James is involved in many charitable activities because he "will always try to give something back to his hometown." Illustrated with photographs of James in action, this short book is a great choice for any kid who loves basketball and the superstars of the basketball court. This is part of the "High Five Reading" series. 2005, Scholastic Inc, Ages 8 to 12.
