Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Joyce Rice
Eleven-year-old Amar'e Stoudemire is always playing basketball. He is one of the best players in his neighborhood, even though he is one of the youngest. Amar'e lives with his dad and his older brother Junior. Amar'e knows that he should be helping his dad with the family's lawn care business, and choosing to play basketball instead has strained their relationship. Amar'e does not understand why his dad cannot see that he is really good at basketball and that it could bring him some success in his young life. The one basketball move that Amar'e would like to be able to do that he has not yet been able to is dunk. When Amar'e injures his eye during the game and has to be out of team practices for a week, his friends pitch in to help him use the time to learn to dunk. Their first method is to put backpacks on both Amar'e's front and back, and then load them with books until he is carrying enough additional weight to act as resistance. Next, his buddies have him exercise with this weight and learn to run up and down stairs with the additional weight. Because of the injury, Amar'e has to wear an eye patch but he knows that he can still be cool with his friends if he accepts the patch with confidence. Amar'e persistence in improving his game eventually wins over his friends, his dad, and his coach. This is the third book in Amar'e Stoudemire's "STAT" series, based loosely on his life. Reluctant readers will enjoy the story's simplicity and inclusion of familiar events. The author addresses family relationships, the reward of persistence, and personal accountability. This is an excellent series for the ages indicated. Reviewer: Joyce Rice

    I am going into 5th grade. I read STAT slam dunk as part of my summer reading.  This is the second STAT book I have read and I really enjoyed them both.  I love basketball, so I like Amar'e Stoudemire's story. If you enjoy basketball too, you may enjoy STAT.
