Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Werner
The Aces and the Spikers are preparing to play their first game of the season. We follow the progress of the game, learning the different skills required and the rules for volleyball. Each game situation is explained, from the referee's whistle to start the game to the final point. There are hints for the players to improve their skills through illustrations and descriptions of how to serve, do a bump pass, a dig pass, and a spike. The official rules explain the situation to which they apply and also give examples in a game setting. Comments from a coach encourage good play and good sportsmanship as part of the game. Included is a diagram of a volleyball court, fun facts, a glossary, and several resources for enjoying volleyball. For a young person interested in learning about and playing volleyball, this book is for them. There are boys and girls in the illustrations, and team work is encouraged.
