Reviews

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Along with describing selected kinds of events in each type of sport, these profiles mention some performance techniques that improve speed, height, or control as appropriate. . . .Small action photos, many with explanatory labels added, break the blocks of text into easily digestible units while adding plenty of visual energy." - School Library Journal
