Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
No sporting event in the United States is bigger than the Super Bowl. Every year millions of people tune in to watch the NFL championship game, pitting the best teams from both the National and American Football Conferences. Starting in the late 1960's the Super Bowl has grown to be an event so large that it nearly dwarfs its actual purpose as a league championship game. Over the years amazing individual and team efforts have resulted in memorable moments played out on a stage so large that it now includes international viewership. In The Super Bowl readers are given a quick history and selected highlights from the storied games that have been played. In tracing the evolution of the Super Bowl from a relatively straightforward playoff game to a sporting event of gargantuan showmanship, writer Hans Hetrick helps his reading audience better understand the amazing growth in popularity of this singular game. Of particular interest are the sections of this illustrated book that recount the stories of great players, coaches, and dynasties that have been so much of the pageantry that has made the Super Bowl so popular. Readers with an interest in football, and sports in general, will enjoy the content of this book. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck
