Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
For the youngest fans, or anyone who craves basketball action photos, the "NBA Champions" revised series offers a lively gallery along with basic facts for basketball beginners. Starting with information about the team's hometown, a double spread shows a cool, aerial shot of Boston's skyline and a look from above at the historic Boston Garden's polished floor; a bit of Celtics history is illustrated with a color photo of famous coach Red Auerbach accepting a gleaming trophy. Kids learn that the Celtics began playing in 1946 and were the best NBA team of the 1960s. Each volume offers a list of team facts, mostly about NBA championships—the Celtics have won the title an amazing seventeen times! Other pages feature easy-to-read text on panels dividing two dramatic color shots or with a wide close-up focusing on star players like the legendary Bill Russell (center and great defensive player), center Dave Cowens, and guard Bob Cousy. Swingman Dave Havlicek and forward Larry Bird (one of the best sharpshooters in the league) get pictures of their own as top players of the past. A newer star, point guard Rajon Rondo, is shown in his green and white Celtic uniform making an expert steal with a grimly determined look on his face. From the poster-yellow endpapers to a final page with an index and a glossary of terms like arena, NBA Finals, and swingman, young basketball fanatics can enjoy this action-filled introduction to the Celtics, the book's sharp design, and the excellent sports photography.
