In this book from the critically acclaimed, multimillion-copy bestselling Little People, BIG DREAMS series, discover the life of Michael Jordan, one of the greatest all-time basketball players.

Little Michael wanted to be the first at everything - especially if that meant beating his older brother. One day, he came home crying... he'd been rejected from the basketball team at school. With his mom's message of "go out and earn it" ringing in his ears, Michael practiced all summer. Soon he was the star of the team, going from school, to college, to the Olympics. After six titles, more than 1,000 games and exactly 32,292 points, MJ became a sporting legend, who encouraged kids to "make it happen!" This inspiring book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the baller's life.
