A take away message from this board book is that Muhammad Ali was “the greatest” both inside and outside of the boxing ring. The youngest listeners will learn about Ali’s decision to learn boxing and also his refusal to fight in a war. They will see that he also gave back by doing charitable work.
As is usual with this series, young readers and listeners will learn a bit about a well known person and what makes them someone to admire.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
This book is part of the Little People, Big Dreams book series for the youngest children. The illustrations are very appealing; Stephen and those around him are cartoon like while the skies look very pretty. This short book tells the main facts of Stephen’s life including his illness.
Two quotes from the book: “But instead of looking down at his feet, Stephen decided to look up at the stars.” Another quote: No matter how difficult life may seem, there is always something you can succeed at.”
The message of this book is to not give up and to follow dreams old and or new. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for another entry in a wonderful series.
