Success in the NBA came early for Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose. His outstanding passing and scoring earned him the 2008-2009 Rookie of the Year Award. Then just a year later, at age 22, he was named the 2010-2011 Most Valuable Player, making him the youngest NBA player ever to receive this honor. Though Derrick is proud of his accomplishments, he knows that he couldn’t have reached his goals without the support of his family. It’s the reason he works hard to make a difference in other people’s lives. From providing backpacks to needy schoolchildren to pledging money to help victims of natural disasters—such as the people affected by the 2011 earthquake in Japan—Derrick Rose is a true basketball hero! In Derrick Rose, readers will follow this point guard’s amazing basketball career and discover how he has made a difference in people’s lives both on and off the court. Large, full-color action photos and engaging text will keep readers turning the pages for more.

Derrick Rose

This entry in the Basketball Heroes Making a Difference series profiles one of the NBA’s brightest young stars. The quick biographical section talks about how, as one of the smaller players on the rough courts of his childhood Chicago neighborhood, Rose learned his electrifying contortion acts to avoid midair maulings, and he also figured out that passing was just as important as scoring. The main focus, though, is on his charitable work, and it describes his efforts close to home (raising money to renovate the courts in his home neighborhood and acting as a role model for disadvantaged kids) and farther afield (pledging money to help with the relief efforts after the 2010 Haiti and 2011 Japan earthquakes). Plentiful photos of the MVP both on and off the court and an easy-reading layout help ensure that this book’s message of giving back swishes home.
