In Spanish-sprinkled animated free verse, a young boy named Clemente (to honor the Hall of Famer) recites the ballplayer's awesome statistics. The text describes the sports legend's dedication to family and the humanitarian work that ended with his untimely death while bringing aid to earthquake victims. Collier's watercolor and collage illustrations are vividly compelling. Reading list, timeline, websites. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
