Poppa's Ring - Book - Linda Fleming-Willis
Bill Willis has always been a National Football League trailblazer and was challenged during the period of segregated football. His family life outside of the game was rarely heard.
Poppa's Ring provides a quick glimpse into the more personal life of Bill as an excellent communicator for all of his grandchildren. Although legendary to football enthusiasts, he was a role model to his children, grandchildren, and many other youngsters.
Bill was the tall, gentle giant who cooked and allowed them to help. He shared stories of his life experience. He also educated them on birds and how to play chess. He posed questions to challenge their curiosity and and intellect and imparted knowledge on the importance of an education. He leaves a legacy of being a good communicator and the importance of family relations.
Poppa's Ring is the perfect addition to any child's library as well as to school libraries, amateur/professional sports teams' reading programs and sports fans. A Must Have!!
