Perdomo, Willie. Clemente!. 2010. New York: Henry Holt and Company. ISBN: 9780805082241.
Clemente was a boy. His dad named him after his favorite baseball player named Roberto Clemente. His dad is the president of Clemente fan club. His uncle is another big Clemente fan. The boy at school is going to pick him to write about for hero day. He studies the baseball player, Roberto Clemente, who gets on an airplane. He is going to help people who lost their homes. The plane never got across the ocean; it was too heavy. Roberto disappeared. His family stands by the water and hoped he would come home. The art looks so real, and it does a good job. I love the book. My favorite part was when he said "En el dia mas grande de mi vida para los nenesme echen la bendicion." I think other kids will love it.
