School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-7-Numerous full-color photographs of children and teens illustrate these introductory titles. Double-page spreads briefly address the history of each sport, the equipment and clothing needed to get started, essential techniques and terms, equipment care, safety, and more. The layout features large print and plenty of white space. Children new to these sports will appreciate the labeled pictures and the photographs illustrating specific positions and stances. "Top Tips" are framed in colorful boxes throughout the titles.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
