Perfect for a sport loving kid!

My sporty son absolutely loved this book. This book spoke to him on so many levels- homework, sports, friends, family etc. As a mom I appreciated the positive messages about sports and life from the view point of a young boy. This book may have just sparked a love of reading for my 10 year old- I am so thankful!
