He struggles at first but keeps working to learn the game, the rules, and the terms. When he finds a golden golf ball with the inscription Harris Hawk, Ross believes he’s found his lucky charm. He uses the golden golf ball in practice and tournaments and quickly excels at the game. But, on the day of the big tournament, Ross can’t find his lucky charm; the golden golf ball has disappeared. Will Ross be able to perform well at the game without his lucky charm? Find out in Harris Hawk and the Golden Golf Ball by Carmen Harris and Ross Harris.
Carmen Harris and Ross Harris’s picture book, Harris Hawk and the Golden Golf Ball, is an engaging tale about a young boy’s introduction to golfing. But it’s more than that; it’s also a story about building confidence and self-esteem and being the best you can be at any assignment. The plot follows Ross’s introduction to golf and his determination to excel. Told in the first person narrative, from Ross’s point of view and using simple language so young readers can easily follow along, the story is a journey from discovery and education to success and determination. The authors include golfing terms which Ross clearly explains as part of his story. The bright, bold, and colorful illustrations help move the story along. At the book's end is a helpful glossary of golf words and some golfing tips from the pros. This interesting and educational read will inspire young people to try golfing, either for pleasure or for competition.
