Salt in His Shoes: Michael Jordan in Pursuit of a Dream

Illustrated by:

Michael Jordan was not always a superstar basketball player. In fact, he was a normal, awkward kid who puts salt in his shoe to help him grow. This inspirational story is told by those who have the inside scoop — Jordan's mother and sister, and illustrated by Nelson's signature paintings which emphasize the boy's gangly stature.
