Sports-minded dads often love to share their skills. The Kids Book of Golf has tips, diagrams, and photos to help with the sharing. The layout makes John Gordon's informative text especially accessible. Each double-page spread is devoted to a specific aspect of the game, including Warming Up, Playing by the Rules, and Heroes of the Past. 2001, Kids Can, $14.95 and $7.95. Ages 6 to 12. Reviewer: Mary Quattlebaum
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Youngsters will find this title helpful for understanding the game or learning to play it. The well-organized, oversized book provides a quick history of the sport, followed by short chapters on equipment, swings, rules, and golf courses. The visually attractive presentation gives advice on warm-ups, professional tips, information about tournaments, and great and funny moments of golf. The clear, interesting, and engaging text includes "amazing" and "strange but true" facts. The attractive, full-color photographs of children and famous golfers executing the skills add to the book's utility as do the strategically placed diagrams. This title is far simpler than Bruce Curtis and Jay Morelli's Beginning Golf (Sterling, 2000) or Mike Adams and T. J. Tomasi's Play Golf for Juniors (Firefly, 2000).-Janice C.
