Book Overview

Told in a new Who HQ Now format for trending topics, this Who Was? biography details NBA superstar Kobe Bryant's legendary career and the impact of his legacy on the sports world and beyond.

Kobe Bryant was just an eighteen-year-old high-school basketball player when he decided to enter the National Basketball Association's draft. Though he was the thirteenth overall pick by the Charlotte Hornets, he would never play a single game for them. Instead, Kobe was traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, where he would spend his entire twenty-season career, winning five championships and numerous awards. Author Ellen Labreque takes readers through each exciting moment, from his iconic dunks to his 81-point game--all the milestones that span Kobe Bryant's legendary career and legacy.

   Excellent book with some unnecessary info
This product was purchased for a primary school library. The book was excellent for most part of the population. Unfortunately, it contained a few pages that stated that Kobe was accused of sexual assault and although he denied the allegations, he paid the accuser a sum of money. This book was written for the 2nd -- 4th graders. Due to these statements on a few pages, the book was not placed in our library. The author needed to consider the age of his audience before putting this information in the book. For this reason, I can not give this book 5 stars.
   Teaches young kids about Kobes sexual assault!!!!!
Kind of disappointed bought this for my 3rd grade son and nephew this year for my 3rd grade son and nephew. It talks about the sexually assault issue Kobe had. It talks about the sexually assault issue that Kobe had. I don 't think that this was an important thing to talk to young children about. My son was confused and asked me what sexual assault means...
The shortest of the book series '' Who Is '' should not be talking about the sexual assault case. Yes, its part of Kobe's past, but should not be added to a children's book. If you are prepared to recommend to young children, then go for it, but I would not recommend at all.
The smallest ever Who was '' book ever. Mostly pictures. A full page picture of Lebron A full page picture of Lebron. Two pages on his sexual assault. I don 't like this book at all. Will be returning. Not for elementary students. Not for primary students.
   Less than 50 pages. Should’ve added more content in the book
This is the thinnest book among the Who was series. If they didn’t have anything to add to the book, they could have talked about nba or the history of the basket ball as a bonus section.
I am a big Kobe fan and so is my husband. I bought this book to read and then to get a class set. The book was great and the book was well written. I will buy a class set definitely. I was just disappointed by the condition of the book. It was bent, discolored, and appeared as though it was a second hand book. Awesome book. Other than that, other than that, awesome. Too bad it was not titles Who is...
   Not appropriate for Elementary Students!!!
I have purchased almost all these books and I donate them to the school library, where I am a substitute teacher. I am extremely disappointed at the content of this book. '' I am extremely disappointed. It was one of the shortest books I think that has been published of this series and the quickest release of when Kobe passed when it was sold. If they could not find any additional material to put in there, while leaving the entire part about sexual assault information... it should not have been published! Our children at the school LOVE these books, as do I, but this is a book I will throw away. I do not even want it in my personal library, I DO NOT even want it in my personal library. Shame on you the authors of this travesty and for putting this information in the book that would cause 8 to 10 yrs old children to ask questions at their age, that they should not have to ask! !
   This book is not suitable for young children
Most reviews on this book occurred before the book was published. Today, I received my copy for my classroom. I have most of the Who Was Collection's collection, and this book is not appropriate for students. On pages 22 and 23, the book talks about the alleged sexual assault. If this book was for adults only, talk about it. But it is written for 8-10 year old CHILDREN, but is written for 8-10 year old CHILDREN. I will never put this in my classroom and encourage you to not put it either in your classroom or at the home library. I am VERY disappointed in the authors of this series. I am VERY disappointed in the authors of this series. I '' :
   Half baked attempt rushed to market
This book is much shorter than any other in the series at 49 pages. Most of the others we have are within about 108 pages. The writing feels rushed and really shallow. I’m no Kobe Bryant aficionado, but even *I* know that they could have done a little deeper dive on aspects of his career and post-basketball life. It would have been better to do a proper “Who was ” treatment than this disappointing rush to market the treatment.
