    One thought on “Finding Buck McHenry”

    1. When Jason is cut from his Little League team, he's supposed to play on a new team, but there are a few problems: no sponsor, no coach, and then - no players. But Jason isn't discouraged. He finds a sponsor easily, and he has a great idea for a coach. School custodian Mack Henry knows lots about baseball, and Jason suspects that he is really the famous Negro League pitcher Buck McHenry, who disappeared because of some legal issues. If people know that Buck McHenry is coaching the team, Jason kno [...]

    2. A fifth-grader recommended this one to me and I'm not sorry I read it. Nice little story about a kid kicked off his baseball team, sure he's found a Negro Leagues legend to coach his new team, and who learns a little bit more than he expected. Nearly the whole book takes place in about 24 hours, which can be difficult to believe but the story trucks along nicely and includes some fascinating history despite its contemporary (well, 80s/90s) setting. With so much dreck on the children's realistic [...]

    3. I think this book was great i really liked it even thought i don't like baseball i really liked this book i wanted recommend this book to all the people that are reading this book because like i said personally i really like this book and who ever is reading this book i hope you enjoy this book.This book was about a kid maned Jason Rose and he is on a baseball team but the coach of the team thinks that instead of playing Jason likes to collect baseball cards and the coach cut Jason cause of that [...]

    4. I enjoyed this book because it was talking about a man named Buck McHenry who used to play in the old Negro Leagues and was an all star pitcher. He played with the best team. When I first started reading it was sort of boring, but after a while it started getting interesting. There was this boy that got kicked out of his old team just so he could be on a new team. Even though his teammates felt bad, they were glad for him because he was going to be one of the best to play against. He met a guy n [...]

    5. I first read this book when I was ten years old and it was awesome. Absolutely a time in my life when I was into superheroes. But Buck McHenry seemed like a real-life superhero to me. I was in the phase where I loved to collect sports cards, especially baseball cards. I could image myself being in this book and re-reading it now I still feel like a kid. This is a great inspirational book. It can really give you a sense of hope and inspiration.

    6. I've been reading a bunch of kids' books this summer to find more quality read-alouds for my 4th graders. I wanted to post this book for the other teachers of the family It's a very cute story with excellent discussion potential regarding judging others and racism. I especially appreciated that this was a great "boys" book, and I felt that it was written with a clear voice. I'm definitely planning to read it to my class this year.

    7. Good story, especially for kids who really like baseball or play on a team and good history lesson. Realistic characters and dialog. Could definitely be a book for a reluctant reader to get into.

    8. This was one of the best young reader's book ever! Children can learn so much about perserverance, as well as how to get along without prejudice. Lots of facts about the old Negro baseball leagues, too. My 6th grade class LOVED this book!

    9. If you like baseball this is a good book for you. Two friends try to find the legendary Buck McHenry. They end up finding someone who they think is him. They get him to be their baseball coach. You have to find out whether they find him or not and if it really was him.

    10. 3 1/2 stars rounded up. The story was rewarding and moved along at a good pace. It was interesting to learn about the black people who were not allowed to play on the mayor leagues in the South. Young boys who like baseball would enjoy the book.

    11. This books shows how a kid (jason)of 11 years old could find out something by his curiosity. Jason discovered that th ecustodian of his school was a great baseball legend in the old negro leagues. i like this book because it was interisting and it gave foreshadowing about what is goin to happen.

    12. I read this book together with my 9 year old son, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It has a lot of baseball facts and history which we learned alot from.

    13. This book is one of few that I just could not stop reading. This book is probably my favorite book I have ever read.

    14. It had a good meaning. Most of all we got to go outside and play wiffle ball everyday when we read it, forreal tho
