I read a similar biography of Lou Gehrig in my school library when I was about 9 or 10 years old and still remember it to this day. My son is that same age now and I got this book for him. I just finished reading it to him and the story touched me so deeply all over again. This is an excellent book for parents to read to children or for children to read to themselves. Lou Gehrig's life contains many lessons that can be applied in all areas; not only sports. Truly, an excellent book.

This purchase was for my grandson for his school summer reading. I thought it was very well done, with great graphics and he enjoyed it.

I first read this book in my niece's school book. After I read just some of it I knew I had to buy it. This story tells how Lou Gehrig was as a baseball player and a person. It was really inspiring and good and it had me in tears at the end. I would recommend this book to anyone and I am going to pass these on to my grandchildren too so they will know who Lou Gehrig was.

My son and I love this book, would recommend to any father/child baseball fans
After readind this book to my son, only once, I felt very sad about what happened. Maybe because my son is only 4, his reaction to this book was a lot of sadness, rather than liking the story, or learning about Baseball. I had to spend quite a bit of time explaining to him we (mom and dad) will not die and go to heaven just yet. He was so concerned we would not be around, and started asking so many questions about DEATH. My whole purpose of buying this book was to teach him about the sport, since he is getting so interested in it, and the experience was not even close to it. It is a good book to have and read about Lou Gehrig's history, but not for a 4 year old who just wants to understand and learn more about Baseball.
