Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Balls are used in a variety of games as shown by the brightly attired bird on the cover of this board book. He is balancing a basketball, baseball, and football. Inside, sturdy white pages are filled with a variety of animals involved in sports that use balls. A lion makes a save in a soccer match, monkeys hit a tennis ball, a kangaroo goes for a slam dunk with a basketball, and an ostrich sets up to kick a field goal. It is a delightful way to introduce very young children to numerous sports and also to encourage discussion about the characteristics of some of the animals—kangaroos can jump, ostriches can kick, and monkeys have the ability to hold objects like humans do. The simply drawn illustrations make it very clear what is happening and the single word of text on each page clearly describes the action. Cohen has created an attractive and surprisingly informative book using very few words but extremely clever illustrations. This is part of the "Board Buddies" series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
