Oh, hey! It's another celebrity picture book!

I know you are all as excited as I am! (Note exclamation points!)

Muhammad Ali has penned a series of new picture books. Actually, others have penned the books but Ali's "core values" are in place. Here's the scoop:
  • "Scholastic Corp.'s 'Muhammad Ali Presents Go the Distance' features books that represent Ali's 'core values' and is aimed at socially disadvantaged students in grades 3-8 who believe neither reading nor education is relevant to their lives, says Lonnie Ali, the boxing legend's wife."
