Meet Michael Jordan, one of the greatest basketball players of all time.
Little Michael wanted to be the first at everything—especially if that meant beating his older brother. One day, he came home crying…he’d been rejected from the basketball team at school. With his mother’s message of “go out and earn it” ringing in his ears, Michael practiced all summer. Soon he was the star of the team, going from school, to college, to the Olympics. After six titles, more than 1,000 games, and exactly 32,292 points, MJ had become a sports legend, who encouraged kids to “make it happen!” This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the baller’s life.

Very sweet and inspiring book. We're not that into sports, but you don't have to be to enjoy this book. Michael's mama encouraged him to work hard and he got far! Lovely to expose my child to different famous people of all disciplines.
