Anyone who knows baseball knows who Lou Gehrig is, but they may not know his story.
This book explores the life of a New York Yankee who never missed a game, in fact, he played 2130 consecutive games. Lou considered himself the "Luckiest Man Alive." Even when he was diagnosed in 1939 with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, he never let that affect him.
Lou never let his disease stop him from living his best. While reading this book, his perseverance and optimism were clearly shown. ( )

Lou Gehrig: The Luckiest Man, focuses more on the later life of the MVP baseball player. He was parents of immigrants. His mom pushed education and a good career but baseball was his passion. Lou had a great career with the Yankees until his health declined from his disease. The later parts of the book highlight how he handled the last parts of his life with grace, dignity, and gratefulness. The way this book is written is very easy to understand so I think it'll be suitable for younger audiences. This would be a great book obviously for students interested in baseball but also ones having a tough time. Even though Lou was sick he didn't feel bad for himself. ( )

This book was a biography about the famous baseball player, Lou Gehrig. It explained how Lou never missed a day of school when he he was young. Once he got to college, he quickly was recruited by the New York Yankees to play Major League babseball. After being on the team for only two games, he started for the first time and from then on played 2,130 consecutive games. He was loved throughout all of baseball. One day, Lou started to not play as well and learned he had a rare disease that was causing his muscles to weaken. Lou had to retire. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame and was even dedicated a day to honor him by Yankee fans. Lou died at the age of 37 and all of baseball was saddened. Throughout all of his hardships, Lou Gehrig never spoke badly of his illness, he only spoke of how lucky he was and all that he was thankful for. This book can be used to teach children about perseverance, hard work, courage, and alway finding the good in life. It can teach students very important lessons that can help them grow and prosper in life. ( )

Lou Gehrig was a Yankees ball player who was a baseball star. At a young age he is diagnosed with a disease that will take his life but insists that he is still the luckiest man alive. This is a good biography because it tells the simplified life story of Lou Gehrig. Would use this for primary and intermediate. Illustrations: watercolor ( )
