Read Tall Tales Poster

Motivating kids and especially hoopsters to read is a slam dunk with this poster from Coretta Scott King-John Steptoe Award-winning illustrator Charly Palmer. The poster features “Gravity,” the greatest ball player to ever lace up a pair of sneakers. Gravity is the central character in The Legend of Gravity: A Tall Basketball Tale, Palmer’s author-illustrator debut. The book spins a tall tale about a neighborhood basketball hero and is accompanied by vivid art and themes including teamwork, loyalty, friendship, and fun.

Special thanks to Charly Palmer and Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers.
