Dream Big: Michael Jordan and the Pursuit of Olympic Gold by Deloris JordanDream Big: Michael Jordan and the Pursuit of Olympic Gold by Deloris Jordan is a children’s biography. This book is written by Michael Jordan’s mother, as she narrates his childhood dream of one day becoming a professional basketball player in the Olympics. While Michaels’ friends aspired be an astronaut or pilot, he had dreams of becoming professional basketball player. Just like many young aspiring basketball stars, Jordan’s’ love for basketball is highlighted in illustrations of him as he “carried his basketball everywhere.” His passion for the game of basketball reminds me much of my sons, and I can relate to his mother as she has to continuously remind him to not play ball in the house. His mother has a strong influence is the storyline as she is continuously reminded him to put his schoolwork before basketball. This is an ideal read for children ages 4-8. The cartoon like illustrations in muted watercolor are remarkable. There is great detail in the illustrations as they help to narrate the inspiring story. This is a terrific story for young aspiring basketball players. I would also recommend this book as the perfect bedtime story for a child with ambitious dreams.

Items being associated with or belonging to Michael Jordan continue to find their way to auction houses, but his mother Deloris P. Jordan is disputing the legitimacy of a recent item on the auctioning block. The restaurant closed and the memorabilia inside was stored at a public storage facility and was later purchased at a public auction. The auctioneer sent NBC 5 scanned copies of two letters and maintains they are original documents, noting the original fold lines, the period of the paper and the extent of typical wear and tear. There's also a slice at the bottom of the letter, the auctioneer points out, which is consistent with what would have been created by someone using a letter opener 34 years ago.
