MIchael Jordan didn't always feel accepted or successful when it came to the game of basketball. He feels that quitting may be easier that continuing to feel like he isn't good enough. Michael's mother tells him that in order to achieve his dreams he needs to pray and put a little salt in his shoes. Michael continues to work hard on his game of basketball and decides to join the court again, proving to be successful. ( )

This is a great book to read in the classroom because it teaches students that if they have a dream, no matter how big or small, they can always achieve it if they set their minds to it. ( )
