Donald Driver is my favorite Green Bay Packer, and I love the Green and Gold!

If we were not living in Packer country, I might not like this as much. It is a feel good book about going for your dreams. My students will like that it is by Donald Driver.

This is a 'be anything you can be' sort of story of a boy people thought was too small to play football. Packer fans will enjoy that this book is by Donald Driver.
