School Library Journal - 09/01/2015 Gr 1–3—This fictionalized look into the childhood of the basketball superstar features young Shaq and his cousin Barry. They're the best of friends and love to play video games. One day while playing their favorite game, they accidentally break the disc. Now charged with the responsibility of replacing the broken game, Barry and Little Shaq must come up with a way to make money. Working together, they come up with the idea to water plants. By working as a team and learning that hard work pays off, they eventually have enough to buy two games. Instead, Barry and Little Shaq decide to use the extra money to help out their community. Filled with cheerful illustrations, this is a quick and easy read. The language is simple and the story filled with a sense of community and friendship. VERDICT A sweet addition to chapter book collections.—H. Islam, Brooklyn Public Library - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
