"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Life Lessons

 

If you are looking for a holiday gift for a young Yankee fan, look no further than All You Can Be: Learning and Growing Through Sports, by Curtis Granderson. It’s a trim, glossy, hardcover book, illustrated by students from New York City’s public schools, and it is nicely done. It also includes ¬†some fun pictures of Curtis as a kid.

The artwork is beautiful.

Painting by Logan Hines, 7 years old (Queens)

Detail of picture by Nancy Lin, 5th Grade P.S./IS 49 (Queens)

I heard Curtis talking about this on the FAN yesterday. Great guy, and sounds like a cool book. Great art, too. Definitely getting one for my boys.

Thanks for the tip! Will be getting this for my daughter. Love the artwork. Curtis is a worthy successor to Bernie as "Most Likeable Yankee (non-Superhuman/Saint division)"

Agree with you all. Curtis is one of my faves, especially after those two catches.

I swear I had a shirt like that when I was a kid; the one he's wearing in the second pic. Seems like one I would have worn...
