Audience: 2nd Grade - 5th Grade
The boy who tells this story of Roberto Clemente, the great baseball player, is named Clemente. His father is president of The Bronx Roberto Clemente Fan Club. The book is a tribute to a man considered to be one of the finest baseball players ever. Besides being a great baseball player, he was a wonderful human being. He never gave up even when people called him ugly names. Spanish words and phrases help tell the story. Sadly, the baseball player lost his life in an airplane accident as a group was taking supplies to earthquake victims in Nicaragua. Pictures by the artist, Bryan Collier, are bright, cheerful and help tell the story.
