Henry Aaron's Dream

author/illustrator: Matt Tavares

series name:
Candlewick Biographies

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 ballplayer in the major leagues. But none of this could stop him. In a captivating biography of Henry Aaron’s young life, Matt Tavares pays inspiring homage to one of baseball’s all-time greats.

“This rousing tribute should resonate with a wide audience." —School Library Journal (starred review)
