Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia M. Steelman
The launch of a new sports series specifically for girls should be good news but the "Get in the Game" series of four titles—including basketball, soccer, and softball in addition to volleyball—is disappointing in length, emphasis, and price. After a multiple-choice, ten question quiz on volleyball, Suen explains the basic strategies of the game, and details facts such as that time periods are called sets and how teams score. A good diagram of a volleyball court shows players' positions. The differences between playing offense and defense are explained, and the definition of "out of bounds" is provided. The rest of the book covers general physical fitness, safety issues, nutrition, and staying hydrated during and after games. The featured recipe for a layered banana-berry smoothie is the healthiest snack in the series. The last chapter "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" encourages girls to hang out with their teammates off the court. The craft project in this addition to the series is for a no-sew bandana tote bag. The accompanying photo shows high school girls carrying the totes but the first step of the instructions recommends that an adult iron the bandanas. This raises questions about the intended audience for this book. At thirty-two pages, the book should be aimed at third graders not young adults but the vocabulary and photos indicate an older audience. The standard series closings of a short glossary, a "read more" list of three books, and the publisher-vetted list of websites conclude this offering. Not recommended for purchase.
