Vicky Franchino has always liked to learn about people who have made a difference in the world. Before writing this book she knew very little about Roberto Clemente, but she now understands why people still remember and honor him more than 30 years after his death. She hopes Clementeâ€™s story will help to inspire others to use their talents and time to make the world a better place. Vicky is the author of a number of other nonfiction books for children, and lives with her husband and their three daughters in Wisconsin.

"I love this concept. It's clever and complete; I've not seen anything similar. It thoroughly addresses the concept using accurate, well explained content vocabulary, a clearly defined text structure, sidebars for additional information, two sets of provocative questions, and a tidy recap. Good stuff."—Gail Saunders-Smith, PhD, Language arts/reading consultant
