Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Golf is one of the most popular recreational sports around. Yet, have you ever stopped to think about how you might explain golf to a novice? Author Sandra Will takes on that challenge in Golf for Fun. Designed as an introduction to the sport of golf, Sandra Will's illustrated book takes readers into the world of birdies, slices, pars, and tee shots. In this well developed book, author Will details the general scoring, etiquette, strategy, and history of a sport that combines hand-eye coordination and judgment. As Will points out in this excellent primer for potential young golfers, this is a sport that requires patience and skill. In golf, the slightest error in a swing can result in wildly unpredictable results. As part of the multi-volume "Sports for Fun" series, Sandra Will's book provides readers with a better understanding of the ins and outs of golf. After reading this book youngsters will also appreciate how exceedingly difficult it is to accurately hit a small ball hundreds of yards into a little hole. 2004, Compass Point Books, Ages 8 to 10.
