The Stone Thrower is a story about Richardson's father who played football, and Richardson writes about her father's journey to becoming the successful man he knew he could be. The story goes through Chuck Ealey's life as a kid, growing up in a time of segregation and having to preserver to achieve his goals. A theme that can be taken from this is to never give up, and keep on trying to prove those who never believed in you wrong. In this story Richardson writes about how Chuck practiced everyday throwing stones at the moving trains, and how he moved to play football in Canada because the NFL did not believe Chuck could be good due to the color of his skin. It is all about the motivation from within, because there will always be someone there to shut you down. You just have to work for yourself and show those people what you are capable of. ( )

The author relates the story of her father Chuck Ealey, a winning high school and college quarterback in Ohio, who could not play as a quarterback in the NFL because of racial discrimination. He played in the Canadian Football League instead, leading his team to a Grey Cup championship in his rookie year. Very relatable story for kids, about overcoming the odds and working hard to achieve goals. ( )
