my 11 year old son hates to read. i purchased the three books available in this series because other reviews said it was a good choice for reluctant readers. he has been begging for more books in the series and loves them. his teacher even emailed to say he was so involved in the book, he didn't realize class had started. there is also not so subtle brainwashing that i have attempted to do as a parent (support your sister, treat your teachers and parents with respect, take pride in your work) that he has started to talk about. highly recommended as a book for young boys and as a book to read with kids and discuss the story.
Growing up as a as a fan of DJ, and a overall fan of baseball. It is great to see he made a path outside of the sport and for children to follow. I purchased every installment in the series for my young child to read, and gain a multitude of perspectives from the sport of baseball that I love.
My 9 year old son who is a sports fan is thoroughly enjoying these books by Derek Jeter. There is no battle when I require him to read for 20 minutes a day. Sometimes he is so involved in the book, when the timer goes off to indicate he can be done, he can't stop reading!
Helped my 10yr old grandson. He started hitting better when he read that when Jeter was in a slump the he told himself to stay balanced and only swing at strikes. The book talks about relationships and conflict resolution with peers.
This was a gift for our 12 year old grandson. I read it first and appreciated the lessons taught! Our grandson has read two of Derek Jeter's books now and has commented both times as to how much he enjoys the story and what he's learned. Well done.
