Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Maggie L. Schrock
LeBron James is not only a basketball star; he is also a wonderful role model. From his early years as a poor child who moved from school to school, to his adult years as a philanthropist for his community, this biography covers it all. As a teenager, James was a star on the basketball court, frequently leading his team to championship games and winning various awards. Even though he received frequent visits from NBA scouts, James was adamant that he needed to finish high school. After graduating, James went on to become a star in the professional basketball world. Once again, James led his team to championship games and won numerous awards. In 2004, after just one year as a professional NBA player, James started a charity called the LeBron James Family Foundation, which helps both kids and single parents. He also serves turkey dinners to struggling families at Thanksgiving, and hosts a bike-a-thon to raise money for needy kids. A wonderfully written biography about an inspirational celebrity, Gatto skillfully weaves quotes from LeBron into her writing. Large, color photographs and eye-catching fact boxes add to the easy to read text. An index and additional references make this book ideal for use with a research report. Reviewer: Maggie L. Schrock
