Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Tiffany Torbeck
Kevin Durrant is one of the best young players in the NBA today. Even at a young age, he displayed an incredible work ethic towards basketball while growing up outside Washington D.C. Durrant often went straight to the basketball court after school, not only training there, but also doing his homework and even napping. This dedication at a young age led him to success in college and at the professional level. He was drafted by the Seattle Supersonics, but then the team was relocated to Oklahoma City after his first season. Moves are tough on sports teams, but with Durrant's leadership, the team was able to succeed after a short time in their new city. In addition to being a leader on the court, Durrant is a leader in Oklahoma City and Washington D.C. as he helps children in need in both cities. This biography not only shows readers that hard work and dedication help make dreams come true, but also that giving back is an important part of life and success. Reviewer: Tiffany Torbeck
School Library Journal
Gr 2–4—Even as it celebrates the on-court success of these NBA superstars, this series places equal weight on their charitable works. Each slim volume follows a star from his youth, including the role family played in his life, to the present, with a generous helping of full-page color photographs. The bibliographies contain articles from major publications, and Sandler enlivens the text with quotations. Though the titles lack clearly stated basic facts (dates of birth, for example) and other information that would have fleshed out the lives of these athletes, young basketball fans will surely enjoy the photographs and stats about the game.
