This book is the sequel to Aiden, the Soccer Star! He’s back, and this time Aiden is playing a new sport, basketball! Although Aiden enjoys the game, he is not sure that his skills are strong enough to make the team. He seeks the help of his friend to improve certain ball techniques. Will it work? Find out if Aiden’s hands will help him become a basketball star!
What a great book! From excellent illustrative work to its motivational story, “Aiden, the Basketball Star” is far more than a “children’s” book.
Aiden had been a fantastic soccer star but wanted to try his hands at basketball. Unfortunately, they’re very different but with the help of his best friend, his family and the people around him, Aiden realizes his full potential at playing this sport, too!
EXCERPT “As the team celebrated their guaranteed entrance into the playoffs, Aiden realized that he had great hands, but they are nothing without his team working together. Teamwork, he concluded, is the main ingredient for victory.”
What also sets this book apart from other children’s books is that Suzan has included a glossary of terms and activity readers can use to help them understand some of the terms used in this book.
