This is a great book to read if you really love basketball. This about the greatest player whoever played basketball. It talks about him being in the NBA and the games he played like the “Flu Game” he played with the flu and won for his team, the “Last Shot” and “The Shrug.” This book reminds me of the movie “Space Jam” in which Michael Jordan helped other people win basketball games to go to the championship. I love this book because I play basketball and he made history so reading this book motivates you to go harder in the game and to try to make it to the NBA like he did. I would only read this book if you play basketball or like Michael Jordan. I give this 4 stars and athletes should read this.

George Washington Carver by Jill Wheeler

gwcRecommended by Kameron H. (Winner of Jimmy John’s)

Do you like reading about famous people? Well here’s one for you. In George Washington Carver, you can read all about his accomplishments and his family. Do you have a famous person in history or an inventor in history? If you do, you should read about one of the greatest people in history: George Washington Carver. George Washington Carver reminds me of other scientists in history, like Thomas Edison. The thing that makes this book stand out is when you read it, you can visualize the life he grew up in, and predict what will make him a brilliant inventor. At first, I did think it was going to be boring, but then it got really interesting at the moment. I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. You should read this book if you like to read about biographies about inventors in history.
