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.
Marcus is a maths whiz who is not good at sport. His dad is a self-help author who thinks Marcus can achieve anything he sets his mind to ...with hilarious results. In illustrated diary format, Marcus's gentle, satiric humour and comic drawings will have readers laughing out loud while learning a surprising amount about sport.
This book is about how happy it made a little girl when her mom bought her a pair of tap dancing shoes while on a shopping trip at the mall. It tells about some fun filled exciting experiences both boys and girls may have with a pair of tap dancing shoes. The illustrator used Chesley's original artwork ideas as well as his/her own in the illustrations. The last two illustrations in her book are of dancewear used in her first dance recital.
As Chesley's mother, I like this book because it allows children to see what they can do too by putting forth the effort to do their best whatever the task, and not take shortcuts or take the easy way out all the time, especially in their reading and writing at school. I hope it will give students the confidence to persevere in their goals/dreams no matter what others do or say or how difficult it may get at times. This is also a fun and exciting book.
Chesley wrote this story in class one day about something she enjoyed doing, taking tap dancing lessons.
