Under ordinary circumstances, the odds of being struck by lightning are greater than the odds of becoming a Major League Baseball player, but Felipe Alou’s circumstances in 1955 were anything but ‘ordinary’… He was a black athlete living in the Dominican Republic, and he spoke no English- not exactly a recipe for success in the U.S., especially during the height of the civil rights movement. This is Felipe’s amazing (true) story of perseverance and determination to beat overwhelming odds and insurmountable obstacles to become one of baseball’s greatest players and managers.

The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for advanced beginning French students.

Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and French), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire French without even realizing it! Happy reading!

 

Note to the teachers

This novel was written in the passe simple.

The writing team felt that this tense was the one that captured most authentically the genre of the story.

The passe simple generally replaces the passe compose in formal writing and formal speech. It describes an action that has ended in a specific time, whereas the passe compose describes an action that may still be in contact with the present.
