Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
The 2006 National Basketball Association (NBA) champions have much to celebrate. They exemplify the series title, "Team Spirit," when one learns of their history both as a team and with the many individuals who are the Miami Heat. Too often teams are comprised of a few stars and they "lead" the team to victory. There are some amazing players on the Heat, but one cannot read this book without being amazed at the stories the players and team provide. The most spectacular is the story of Alonzo Mourning. However, to know the details surrounding his story readers will have to pick up this book. Mark Stewart does a tremendous job describing both the history and success of the team as well as their struggles. Numerous photographs throughout this title provide readers with much to learn. Throughout the book, the number and variety of sections provides quite an entertaining read for any sports fan. Not only do the books in this series provide readers information on the teams highlighted, but also some of the basics of the sport being discussed. Contributions of coaches and other staff members are also highlighted in this informative series. This book is a good addition to any nonfiction collection.
