20 odd years ago it wasn’t known that football players were affected by all the hard hits they took. Players can have headaches, become moody, and forgetful. This has happened to ZJ’s dad, a professional football player, and no one knows what’s going on or how to fix it. Jacqueline Woodson has written this beautiful poetic story about how family isn’t always blood and that music can bring you together in good times and bad.

This book tells the story of a young boy who had a passion for knowledge and loved plants. His dedication to learning about plants and the ways in which they could be used makes George Washington Carver one of the earliest environmentalists. His willingness to share his knowledge made him an advisor to world leaders and a voice for racial harmony. This easy to read and beautifully illustrated book give just the right amount of detail to help you understand why he was such an Important figure in U. S. history and also inspired me to want to learn more about him.
