Growing Up Pedro How the Martinez Brothers Made It from the Dominican Republic All the Way to the Major Leagues review Ó 103 T times before he won the Cy Young three times he was a kid from a place called Manoguayabo in the Dominican Republic Pedro loved baseball than anything and his older brother Ramon was the best pitcher he’d ever seen He’d dream of the day he and his brother could play together in the ma. My 8 year old and I reserved all of the Caldecott contenders from the library so that we can run them through our own family jury before the winners were officially announcedThere was so much to like about Growing Up Pedro In the story We love the fact that Pedro feels like one of our own because he was a Red Sox pitcher He was with the Red Sox in a very significant year 2004 the first time in 86 years that the Red Sox finally won the World Series The story of Pedro is about overcoming so many obstacles his poverty his small size and other challenges Knowing that Pedro didn t do it alone he always relied on his big brother Ramon who helped him to learn English to throw a curveball and told him to never to give up on his dream I loved that Ramon and Pedro got to play on the Red Sox together I especially love that Pedro hasn t let the money and fame of being in the major leagues go to his head He stayed in his hometown of Manoguayabo and donated his time and money to help improve the lives of the people there He is responsible for paving roads building houses churches baseball fields and a new elementary school Really great story well told Beautiful illustrations The illustrations were done in watercolor gouache and pencilL gave the story a 4 and the pictures a 4 He said that he didn t give the illustrations a 5 because some of the people s heads looked funny like bobble heads instead of depictions of real peopleI give the story a 5 and the pictures a 4Pedro is a great hero for kids I loved the author s story about his own love for and experiences with Pedro MartinezThis book is good for baseball fans and non sports fans alike
