Disclosure: Compensated post. My opinion is honest and my own regardless of compensation.
All Bernard Jones wanted to do while staying with his grandparents for the summer in Elmdale, his father’s childhood hometown, was work on his basketball skills. When Bernard excitedly enters a team into the Annual Elmdale Park Basketball Tournament, he’s shocked to discover that the future of the park is at stake. The town of Elmdale hasn’t won the tournament in 20 years, and Victor Franco, a ruthless millionaire, is planning to shut down the annual tournament for good so that he can turn the historic Elmdale Park into a landfill for his own profit. It can all be stopped if Bernard and his team, the Elmdale Warriors, win the tournament this year. Can the courageous Bernard and his fun and wacky crew defeat their Oakdale rivals and save the historic Park?
This upbeat, quirky and modern kid’s book would make a great stocking stuffer for the basketball lover in your family this year. My favorite character was the talking basketball coach. Why? Because he is a basketball…coach. A talking basketball – what?
The wording in this book is super easy to follow and the fun illustrations help break up the pages for kids who get disinterested easily.
