I don't believe in hero worship, let alone living hero worship but Ali comes as close to a hero as you can get. This book does a good job of sheding light on why Ali is idolized and held in reverence by so many people throughout the world. The book moves quickly through the major events of Ali's life in a manner that is easy to digest for young, impressionable minds. The children's book is light and easy to hold and has plenty of art to capture the imagination. As with any children's book it is important to add information and clarity to subjects brought about in the book. For example, when the issue of the draft and his refusal to go into the Army is raised, the adult should explain, in more depth, about the time period; supplement the information ,if you will. The unorthodox written style, a free-verse structure, that is highlighted by the text being in different sizes, sometimes straight, some times at an angle, results in a fun and clever way at looking at a children's book. As with many children's books, the art work is one of the major strengths of the book. The art is as exuberant as the the subject matter. This book is a nice introduction into the life of Muhammad Ali for children in the primary grades. Recommended for community and primary grade libraries K-6.
