I read this several years ago, and, as a librarian in a Christian school, I recommended it highly. Reading about real people of good character, especially inspiring people like Dave Dravecky, is a great way to teach children how to respond to some of life's hardships. Dave is open and honest in this real life account of the shock of a cancer diagnosis in his pitching arm. Some of his books for adults continue the story.

My 6 year old nephew loves baseball. Trying to teach him to read and his daddy has been reading this to him. He wants to read all the way through. Need more books like this for children

...i didn't like the book.. Lets just say I didn't get a feel for what it was supposed to mean.Im a straight A Student and i didn't like END
