Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Naomi Milliner
Meet the Colts is one of six football-centric, cookie-cutter books in the "Smart About Sports" series. The introductory chapter (each "chapter" being one page of text and one photograph) states, "A winning team starts with a good quarterback." The next section explains that the Colts played in Baltimore prior to Indianapolis, and won titles in both places. Next, we learn that their stadium can be open or close-roofed; depending on weather conditions. The next two pages show eight cards from the authors' private stash and give a factoid or two about each player. Other features include a two-page picture spread inviting the reader to find three things starting with the letter C (hint: one includes the name of the team); and a section entitled "Brain Games." These games include a five-line poem (how that qualifies as a game is unclear), and two statements, only one of which is true. For further stimulation, there are maps with numbers indicating the birth places of random players. The final pages include a record book and a list of football terms like yard and touchdown. It is tough to determine who this book would interest. Surely hard-core fans of any age know what a touchdown is, and the games and maps are an obvious, but unsuccessful, ploy to justify the "Smart about Sports" premise. A steal may be desirable in football, but at the book's price, your cash is the thing being stolen. Reviewer: Naomi Milliner
