Henry Aaron's Dream
author/illustrator: Matt Tavares
Tavares Baseball Books
Before he was Hammerin' Hank, Henry Aaron was a young boy growing up in Mobile, Alabama, with what seemed like a foolhardy dream: to be a big league baseball player. He didn't have a bat. He didn't have a ball. And there wasn't a single black ball player in the major leagues. But none of this could stop Henry Aaron. In a captivating biography of Aaron's young life, Matt Tavares offers an inspiring homage to one of baseball's all-time greats.
"Well-written text and brilliantly composed art highlight the poignancyand triumph in Aaron's story." -
