“Basketball Beyond the Bench” is a children’s book about Basketball careers. It was written to educate kids about the many people working behind the scenes of a sporting event. When kids are into sports they only learn about the player. A lot of children dream of becoming a NBA or WNBA stars. But, there are amazing jobs that kids can do besides just being an athlete. I wrote the book to inspire kids with different gifts who may not be an athlete, but wants to have an awesome career in sports.
The book is interactive an informative. It gets the kids involve by asking the children to picture themselves as a coach, for example and giving a real life scenario of what a coach does. There is also a message at the end of my book that give points to help children be successful in anything they choose to become. Hopefully, after reading my book kids will be inspire to explore many more options in sports careers.
