Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
How do colors help us understand and enjoy sports? Some answers are given in an interesting way in this nonfiction book in the A+ books "Colors All Around" series. Large double-spread photos in bright colors along with short descriptive paragraphs explain the role of colors in sports. Football players wear team shirts in the same color, black rubber discs are used on the white ice in hockey, and baseballs are white with bright red stitches. Bowling balls come in neon colors, and the Olympic Games award gold medals. A swimmer wears a tight stretchy purple swimsuit because loose suits would drag in the water and slow down a swimmer. Orange, pink, blue, red, and yellow are each featured in a variety of sports. The photos are outstanding, and the text is written with some subject-specific vocabulary words such as referee and jersey that are defined in the glossary. Early readers may be able to read the short paragraphs independently. The text also contains a table of contents, an index, a "Read More" section, and Internet sites. This text is a good curriculum resource for learning about both colors and sports. Reviewer: Vicki Foote
