Salt in his shoes is cool. At the end he was tall. I thought it was going to be boring at first but it turned out to be a good book.I think you should read this book.But I don't know if salt will really make you tall.And Michael Jordan is fifty years old.

I am doing a report on Michael Jordan and I was wondering if you can send some information about him.

There are a number of stories on the MY HERO Web site you might want to use in your research.

I would like to say that this is one of michael jordan's best books and i wanted to know if michael jordan would come to Adam's Jr High School to talk about how we can join sports and get better grades.

We would suggest that you try to contact Michael Jordan and his organization through his official Web site:
