Overview

Fore! Lookout for the latest shot from the Sleeping Bear Press sports title: P is for Putt: A Golf Alphabet. Look no further than the ever-growing popularity of Tiger Woods and Michelle Wie to see that golf is a sure-fire hit in the hearts of youngsters. And adults! This fun and educational ABC book takes a look at golf's illustrious history and stars in easy-to-read rhyming text that follows the heroics of Babe Didrikson Zaharias to the splendor of the Master to the mystery of the dimples of every golf ball. Sport-loving Brad Herzog brings his pen power to skillfully explain the game on grass and the characters and legends that make golf as fun as it is difficult to master. No matter what course hackers step upon - their local public course or the majesty of Pebble Beach, golf is a game full of color and colorful character and history. Artist Bruce Langton brings his outdoor eye to capture the rich and lustrous palette of the sport of swings. A perfect gift for the sport nut, amateur golfer or anyone who has dreamed of playing alongside the greats, P is for Putt: A Golfer's Alphabet is a welcome addition to any golf bag, bookshelf or 19th hole. Once the book is opened, it won't be put down until every fun, fact-filled page has been shared and shared some more. Teeing off this April!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
In this title golf facts are connected to each letter of the alphabet. The rhyming style is catchy; however, the alliteration used could possible make it more difficult to read aloud. Every page contains a side panel filled with the origin of the subject being discussed. For example, when youngsters reads "E is a round of eighteen holes" they also learn that it was Scotland that the first course consisting of 18 holes. Even difficult letters such as "X" are handled perfectly by stating that, "X marks the spot where the ball lands on the green." The illustrations are excellent and give the reader both information and pleasure. Picking an age group for this book is difficult—a young child will enjoy the rhyme and pictures while an older child can use the information found in the side panels to learn about golf. I definitely recommend this book for the ESL student and students who struggle with reading. Author Herzog has managed to reach a wide range of young people. This book should be in every child's library. 2005, Sleeping Bear Press, Ages 5 to 14.
