Library Journal Review
K-Gr 2-Bright, action-packed photos and simple text make this a dynamite choice for beginning readers. More detailed and informative than similar series, these books explain basic rules for each of the sports discussed. While the information is not detailed enough to allow immediate mastery, the specifics discussed offer a nice introduction for kids who are thinking of trying a new sport. Critical thinking questions throughout allow students to think about and apply what they've read. The sports covered are all popular enough to have a built-in audience, and the diversity of kids included in the pictures will make parents and teachers happy. VERDICT First-round draft picks with crowd-pleasing potential. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
