Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Golf is a fun game enjoyed by people of all ages. For many it is seen as a sport of older men played on the weekends. In this book, author Fauchald presents this sport in a manner understandable to younger readers. While many sports books with basic language and explanations cater to the older, high-interest readers, this picture book is written specifically for the early reader. Simple language throughout the book is the rule as the author explains the various details regarding the sport of golf. The illustrations cater specifically to young children. In combination, the author and illustrator are successful in creating an appealing book for children. Information balloons throughout the text also help inform the reader. A very positive aspect of this book is its unique point of view. While the narration is in the third person, the author writes as if the reader is participating in learning the game of golf with a friend. For many young children, inclusion is a wonderful hook. This is a great book for any elementary school library collection. 2006, Picture Window Books, Ages 5 to 10.
