All Bernard wanted to do while staying with his grandparents in Elmdale for the summer was work on his basketball skills so he could make the freshman team. But when greed threatens to destroy the small basketball town's legendary park, he takes action and attempts to win a big tournament to save it. Courage and determination shine as he and his team try to help restore the town's park and legacy to its previous glory!

Praise for 'The Hoop Kid From Elmdale Park'
This was such an enjoyable read! I love the nice, upbeat story, the realistic characters, and the fantastic humor (particularly with G5000’s antics). Bernard is such a relatable character, and he’s a great true-to-life role model. Readers are sure to appreciate the basketball lingo, his love of the game, and his determination to fight the good fight.

The book includes illustrations of comic book characters that bring the text to life. I loved the "family" aspect of the story. The binding together of all the generations to fight for a worthy cause for the future of their town. Bernard Jones is a true-to-life role model for kids from everywhere. - Story Wraps
Teko Bernard has created a wonderfully diverse cast of characters, both young and old. Our young hero Bernard is a super likable, relatable, and plucky guy who isn’t obnoxiously perfect or too flawed. He’s someone young readers will believe in and want to be friends with. I like that there’s also a female character that is not only smart and funny, but also athletic. The most unusual and interesting character isn’t human at all, but a talking, thinking, coaching basketball!
- Word Spelunking
A fun fast-paced read that provides a great cast of characters who each have a different quirk and skill-set. This was a nice combination of fantasy and reality and I loved the characterization of Bernard's coach. The actions of one of Bernard's biggest rivals was a little surprising but the excitement of a hard-fought basketball game and the importance of strategy and determination is delightfully conveyed. Hopefully there will be more of these entertaining stories.

This is a fun story, especially for boys. It’s well paced, keeping the interest of even sluggish readers, and offers a topic that will make a sport lover’s heart beat faster. -Dr. S. Drecker, Bookworm for Kids
