Little People, Big Dreams: Michael Jordan - Isabel Sanchez Vegara
This little biography of Michael Jordan tells the inspiring tale of 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 because he’d been rejected from the school basketball team. His mother told him to 'go out and earn it' so he practised all summer. Soon Michael was the star of the team, going from school, to college to the Olympics. After six titles, more than 1,000 games, and 32,292 points, MJ had become a sports legend, who encouraged kids to 'make it happen!'
The Little People, Big Dreams books series portrays the inspiring lives of artists, designers, activists and scientists in a super-accessible way with sweet illustrations and by focusing on when they started out as children with a dream. Each book has a biographical timeline with historical photographs and extra facts, too.
