Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Exciting visual content will draw children to the 18-volume "Super Bowl Champions" series, in which each book introduces a single team that has won the Super Bowl. The books' dynamic page design and layouts increase the sense of movement and drama found in the colorful photos. .this is one of the few attractive football series with a text short enough for reading to young children.
Children's Literature
The Green Bay Packers are distinguished for winning the first Super Bowl. Producing players such as Bart Star, Paul Hornung, Brett Favre, Ahman Green and Reggie White, the Packers can be considered a football dynasty. Vince Lombardi, namesake for the Lombardi trophy (The Super Bowl Trophy), not only led the Packers to victory but has several well-known statements that have become a part of sports history and vernacular. Aaron Frisch writes about this amazing team. A title of the "Super Bowl Champions" series, this book, is more suited for young readers than for high-interest low readers. With simple writing, the subjects covered are more for small children than for middle level students. Subjects like uniform description are not as important as history and statistics. The history covered is good but lacking. In addition, when writing about Brett Favre the author uses the past tense. A glossary and fact pages complete the book. Most good sports books contain a timeline, along with more information about the players and coaches who were a part of the team--for example, Mike Holmgren leading the team to the Super Bowl--but there is no mention of this great coach. Recommended for younger readers. 2006, Creative Education, Ages 5 to 10.
