Little Shaq - Shaquille O'Neal


Chapter 1


Little Shaq dribbled the basketball, bouncing it up and down.

He moved his feet from side to side. His sneakers squeaked against the court.

Come on, Little Shaq. Pass me the ball! his cousin Barry shouted. Barry’s voice sounded far away.

The game clock was down to five seconds. If Little Shaq scored this basket, his team would win the game!

I’m open. I’m open! Barry yelled. Little Shaq took a deep breath. The clock ticked down. Three … two …

Little Shaq’s friend Walter Skipple raised his arms to block the ball, but he wasn’t fast enough. With one quick leap, Little Shaq shot the ball into the air. It flew off his fingertips toward the basket.

The ball slid through the net just as the buzzer sounded.

    Little Shaq is the story of Little Shaq and his cousin Barry. They’re the best of friends. They love basketball, but Little Shaq does not let Barry shoot very often. Barry is upset when Little Shaq takes the shot to win the game when he is open but does not get the ball. They also love video games and Barry gets to choose the one to play. When Little Shaq shows Barry up in the game and again does not pass the ball, Barry gets upset and the game gets broken. They try to blame one another and Little Shaq finally realizes how Barry feels. Both boys accept responsibility of paying for a new game. They decide to work together to raise money to pay for it. They come up with the idea to water plants to earn money. They have fun and a few misadventures in their task but by working together and learning that hard work pays off they have enough for two games. Instead of buying the games, Barry and Little Shaq decide to use the money to help out their community by making a community garden, and get all their neighbours and friends to help out. Filled with great illustrations a quick and easy read. The language is simple and the story filled with a sense of community and friendship. A couple of great lessons to learn. The illustrations are cute and certainly add to the story.
