Former NFL coach Tony Dungy layers on a lesson as thick as troweled-on mortar. When the Dungy family heads to a football game, Jordan wanders off and gets lost. The brief text may support early readers, but the pedantic story ("We are a team. And a team stays together!") won't leave them cheering for more. Colorful but awkward illustrations accompany the text.
