Salt In His Shoes: Michael Jordan In Pursuit Of A Dream

Michael Jordan. The mere mention of the name conjures up visions of basketball played at its absolute best. But as a child, Michael almost gave up on his hoop dreams, all because he feared he'd never grow tall enough to play the game that would one day make him famous. That's when his mother and father stepped in and shared the invaluable lesson of what really goes into the making of a champion -- patience, determination, and hard work. Deloris Jordan, mother of the basketball phenomenon, teams up with his sister Roslyn to tell this heartwarming and inspirational story that only the members of the Jordan family could tell. It's a tale about faith and hope and how any family working together can help a child make his or her dreams come true.ReviewThe Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books A picture-book winner.Boston Herald [A] slam-dunk effort.Chicago magazine An inspiring piece of Jordaniana.Kirkus Reviews Soul-satisfying.Miami Herald The power of myth-in-the-making.About the AuthorDeloris Jordan is Michael Jordan?s mother and the coauthor ofSalt in His Shoes, illustrated by Kadir Nelson, whichBooklist called ?inspirational;?Did I Tell You I Love You Today?, illustrated by Shane W.
