Hi, this is Patrice Badami, with Acorn to Tree Children’s Book Review, today I have a book called The Adventures of Little Swoop When I Grow Up. It’s from Dwayne “Swoopes” Simpson, and let me tell you who he is. He is a player on the Harlem Wizards basketball team.  He grew up in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He went to St. Peter’s High School and southern Connecticut State University. He was on the New England conference championship team. He played for the Harlem Rockets and then the  Harlem Globetrotters and currently, he’s with the Harlem Wizards. It’s a great organization, and they help schools to raise money for supplies they need. The Wizards were recently at my daughter’s school. Mr. Simpson  was telling me about this book   and I wanted to share it with you. There is a picture of him on the back. Let me tell you what the books about,  it talks about a how when Dwayne was a little child he tried to  figure out what he wants to do in the future when he is an adult.  He  speaks to his family about it. He thinks about maybe being a chef, a singer, an artist or a builder. Finally he comes to the decision that basketball is really what he loves to do. What is nice about it is he finds a friend on the basketball court near his home. That friend helps him by constantly practicing with him. He tells him don’t give up, keep trying. As you see, the result is he decided ot be a professional basketball player. Here he is in this great picture that we got signed by him. Here’s the whole team. So it’s just a cute book, explaining for from a child’s perspective, what they wonder about for the future and how you should continue on your your path and follow your dreams. It’s just a wonderful book, see if you could find it. And if you liked the video, do so and you’ll find other books that I review as well.
