Sort order. May 16, Aaron Schroeder rated it it was ok. I really did not enjoy reading this book. He gets made fun of for his bad vertical, and it ultimately hurts his basketball skills. He then has to find out if he is a hard enough worker to get himself better.
I recommend this book to people in middle school or younger, because older people will find it boring. Shelves: read-in-my-classroom , fiction-realistic. I remember back in my grade school days that our meager school library had a bunch of Matt Christopher books and that the boys in my class were constantly checking them out.
I wouldn't have touched them with a 10 foot pole not a sports fan. Flash forward years later. I end up in the intermediate classroom everyday after lunch, a class of four boys. They happened to be reading this book. They enjoyed it immensely. I'm still not a huge fan, but if you have some sports-loving boys, they will liste I remember back in my grade school days that our meager school library had a bunch of Matt Christopher books and that the boys in my class were constantly checking them out.
I'm still not a huge fan, but if you have some sports-loving boys, they will listen to you read this. The main character is Johnny who is really tall and on the basketball with his stepbrother.

There's a boy on a rival team who causes trouble for the two of them, but in the end, all three boys learn how to mend fences. Feb 13, Matthew added it. Feb 01, Blake rated it liked it. I'm not a very big fan of this book because it talks about a guy who is very tall and he can't really jump high at all. So the kid has to train and work out a lot to get his vertical better. I recommend this book to younger people because it's a little kid book and is not the best book.

Sep 13, Lance Rademacher rated it liked it. This was a good book and I thought that it was an inspirational book and people would like this book and mostly people who like sport books.
Nov 15, Cade S rated it liked it. This book could have been better. Is it about a boy that plays basketball and he is really tall because of his legs. He isn't the best at basketball because he is uncoordinated. Mason rated it liked it Oct 30, Joshua rated it liked it Apr 19, Jayden rated it really liked it Sep 23, Craneflies and Opiliones, aka harvestmen, are not venomous at all and don't pose any threat to humans.
Another tip is to keep the plants and bushes around the perimeter of your house trimmed so that they have no place to hide and lay their eggs. If you are still infested try spraying some bug spray around the entrances and openings to your property. They might be a nuisance in your home, but try not to kill them. Daddy long legs are actually considered a beneficial predator as they eat a variety of smaller insects as well as gobbling up faeces and carcasses. If you find a daddy long-legs indoors, try to catch it gently using your hand or a glass and release it outside to continue its work cleaning up the environment.
Aside from their long spindly legs, there are actually very few similarities between craneflies and spiders. However, while from a distance the creatures appear very similar, that is where the shared characteristics end. Another big difference between the creatures is that harvestmen don't produce silk and so can't create webs. Interestingly, harvestmen also produce a smell when threatened and even weirder still, while spiders reproduce indirectly, harvestmen do in fact have penises. We pay for your stories!
