As a kid, Adrian Peterson got the nickname “All Day” (A.D.) because he was always on the go. As an adult, teammates still call him A.D., because he never stops working. Adrian’s tremendous work ethic has helped him become one of the best running backs in the NFL. Some of A.D.‘s most important work takes place off the field, however. After his rookie season, he started the All Day Foundation, an organization that raises money for charities such as the Boys & Girls Clubs and the Special Olympics. Through all of his success, A.D. has always recognized that hard work should not be limited to the football field. In Adrian Peterson, kids will follow this NFL star’s record-setting football career while also discovering the many ways that A.D. makes a difference in kids’ lives off the field. Large, full-color action photos and an engaging narrative text will keep young readers turning the pages for more.

Adrian Peterson

These feel-good books introduce stars who make as much of a difference off the field as on. Each one begins with play-by-play narration that features the athlete in a life-changing game. The man’s early abilities are then described, beginning with high school and college, and going on to cover his recruitment into professional sports. Sandler describes how Peterson was a star player early on, whereas Romo was not considered a great catch, even in college. Subsequent chapters feature each athlete’s desire to give back to his community through civic groups and charitable organizations such as the Special Olympics. Concluding fact sheets provide additional tidbits of information. Though each book features large color photos on every page, those depicting the players’ work with organizations that help children realize their dreams are especially poignant. These titles convey a positive message about athletes in a time when so many are featured in the news negatively, and they are sure to inspire readers.
