Michael Jordan wanted to be a professional baseball player like his dad and brother. But as Michael and his big brother got older, they started playing basketball. One of Michael's favorite players was Dr. J. Erving. Then Michael started playing for North Carolina. As Michael got older he was playing for the NBA, the Chicago Bulls. Then he started being a pro.
I think this is a good book because I like basketball. It is my favorite sport. I read a different book about Michael Jordan, but this one is better. There are seven pages of photographs in the book. There are pictures of Michael playing basketball in North Carolina, playing baseball in the minors, and playing with the Bulls. My favorite part of the book was when he started to play well, because when he was a little boy he wasn't good at basketball.
I would recommend this book because it is a good book and it talks about basketball and most of my friends like basketball.
