Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Some children might be familiar with the name Muhammad Ali or the rhyme "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee," but not many know who Cassius Clay was or what makes a professional athlete stand out beyond even the best of his peers. Muhammad Ali is a part of the Weekly Reader series called "People We Should Know" which covers the lives of famous people: their early years, hardships, accomplishments, and impact on the world. The life of Cassius Clay—a poor African-American boy turned Olympic and Heavy Weight Champion, Muslim, and human rights activist—is presented in this book in such a way as to invite a new generation of fans. Each brief chapter is accompanied by photos and sidebars of interesting facts, making the amount of information accessible and engaging to the middle reader and adults alike. A glossary and index also help to make this book perfect for learning in the classroom. 2006, Weekly Reader Early Learning Library, Ages 8 up.
