Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
Named the Indianapolis Colts, the team with the simple horseshoe on their helmet is anything but simple. Originally they were called the Baltimore Colts. When their team owner wanted a new stadium and Maryland would not comply, he moved them to Indianapolis. Interestingly, the Colts today are known for the same style of play they had when in Baltimore and when they were winning Super Bowls. Johnny Unitas led the Colts with his amazing passing prowess. Today it is in that same tradition that Peyton Manning, son of former professional football quarterback Archie Manning, is using to lead a talented and determined team. Mark Stewart has written a colorful and informative book. Color photographs grace the pages and make the legendary Colts come alive. As with other titles in the "Team Spirit" series, Stewart not only describes the history and skill of the Colts, but their team play and strong bonds as a professional athletic team. Included are numerous sections of facts and player quotes, as well as sections for further exploration. This book provides fun and information to the young reader. A good addition to any library.
