In this book, Phil Knight tells his beautifully crafted story in a humble, unfiltered, surprising, and funny way.
It all starts with a 24 years old boy, backpacking through Europe, Asia and Africa, battling with the greatest questions of life. He decides to go the unconventional way rather than working for a great corporation, and create his own thing, something new, different and dynamic.
In depth, Knight talks about the many terrifying challenges he faced as he progressed, the overwhelming setbacks, the callous competitors, the numerous haters and doubter and adamant bankers. Above all, Phil Knight recalls the relationships that prepared a ground for the Nike brand, with Bill Bowerman, his former running coach, a very charismatic and irascible man, and his first savants and employees who became brothers of the crazy swoosh band.
They shared a strong belief in transformative, redemptive sports power, so they created the Nike brand that brought a difference in everything.
This is a fun-filled, confidence building book that was created by Eric Carle who is also a creator of over seventy picture children books. In this interactive story’ Eric invites children to copy animal movements. The kids watch giraffes as they bend their long necks, and monkeys as they wave their hairy arms and join in.
During that time, the children will be jiggling, giggling and wriggling from their toes up to their heads to make sure that they keep pace with the animals! Elephants stop, alligators wiggle, giraffes bend and gorillas thump. The animal states the gesture and asks, "Can you do it?" Each kid responds, "Yes, I can do it!”
Eric uses familiar animals that invite children to imitate their antics, who in turn learn important skills such as focusing attention, careful listening, as well as following instructions. The Toe to Head introduces the child to the basic parts and movements of the body. These simple movements help them progress to major body movements such as gymnastics, dancing, sports and other activities, with pleasure and confidence.
