VOYA - Sherrie Williams
The four-book Inside Sports series introduces the basic aspects of several popular sports and examines some of the most popular and skilled athletes to play each game over the years. In addition to the basketball and baseball books noted here, the series also includes volumes on football and soccer. Each book begins with a thorough history and an introduction to the sport. The challenges faced by women and African-Americans in the historical development of the games are highlighted, as well as the contributions of each of these groups in today's baseball and basketball world. There is also detailed information about the rules and equipment involved in each game, as well as the evolution of the rules and tools used in each sport over the years. Each book ends with profiles of notable players who have excelled in each game. These profiles feature a well-balanced blend of historical players, those in the more recent past, and the stars of today. The books are colorful and heavily illustrated, with large color pictures on the majority of the pages. The information is well organized, and the text style will appeal to young or reluctant readers. The covers feature bold, stylized action shots of current popular players and have a great deal of visual appeal. Students doing reports on the history of their favorite games will find these books useful, and this series will also find an audience with young sports fans.
