Super Bowl XLV was Aaron Rodgers’ final test. For six years, the Green Bay quarterback had been trying to silence the critics who said he’d never be as good as legendary Packer Brett Favre. Now he had a chance to prove he was a great quarterback. But first he would have to beat a tough opponent—the Pittsburgh Steelers. Could Aaron lead his team to victory and prove he was one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL? In Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers: Super Bowl XLV, young sports fans will follow Aaron from his childhood in northern California and Oregon, through his college years at the University of California, all the way to his NFL championship season. Full-color photos and engaging play-by-play narratives will keep readers on the edge of their seats as they cheer on Aaron and the Packers.

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers

On the very first page of this newest entry in the Super Bowl Superstars series, Sandler sets up the drama: “For six years, the Green Bay passer had been trying to overcome the fans who doubted him.” Not any easy goal: glaring across the line from him at Super Bowl XLV were the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers. Could he do it? Well, of course he could—but that doesn’t diminish the pleasures of this snappy mini biography. Before giving the blow-by-blow of the championship, the book first takes a look at Rodgers’ journey, from high-school athlete (including a shot of him pitching for his baseball team) to his community-college debut (bigger schools were scared off by his small size) to his not-so-smooth taking of the reins from Green Bay legend Brett Favre. Huge full-bleed photos, some of which span over both pages, will draw in reluctant readers, while boldface words (scrambling, ground game) are defined in a concluding glossary. Back matter also includes bios on two of the big game’s “Key Players.”
