Reviews - What do customers think about Lou Gehrig: One of Baseball's Greatest (Childhood of Famous Americans)?

Good book, except for the Santa spoiler  Dec 6, 2008
My 10-year-old son greatly enjoyed this classic story of Lou Gehrig's childhood. It is an engaging story of inspiration and hard work. However, there is a Santa spoiler in the first chapter that could create a very big problem for some younger children and their beliefs. I
Childhood of American Heroes  Sep 8, 2008
This book covers the childhood of Lou Gehrig, with little discussion of his years as a Yankee. It is a good starting point for youngsters already familiar with Gehrig's baseball accomplishments, as it describes the poverty and difficulties of his upbringing. The child should already ubderstand Gehrig's baseball on field accomplishments and his heroism in the face of his incurable disease for the book to have the greatest impact.
Awesome book  Nov 18, 2006
I am a HUGE yankee fan, and I thought I knew about Lou Gehrig and his Yankee career days. After reading the book, I found out what he was like to be a kid and growing up. It was super. I really enjoyed it - it was very informative and very exciting.
I highly recommend it!!!
Lou Gerig's the Luckiest Man  Apr 1, 2001
THis is a good book for baseball fans all over. It's more of a kid's book, but it's got great info. It even has his "luckiest man in the world" speech in it!
