Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Tiger Woods is a twenty-five-year-old phenomenon, the "Michael Jordan of golf." His name and face are known throughout the U.S. and the world. His success has made golf a popular sport for children, most notably those of African-American descent. This short biography reveals the salient details of Tiger's meteoric riseā€”his intelligence, work ethic and competitive spirit. Only one page is devoted to Eldrick's (his given name) mixed parentage and how he got his nickname as an infant. The rest of the book covers his career, its high and few lows, and includes relevant facts about his education. By age two, Tiger played and won his first golf tournament; at fifteen, Golf Digest ranked him the number one junior player nationally. He graduated from high school with an A average and earned an award for being the top high school student-athlete in the U.S. Readers don't have to be interested in golf to appreciate what Tiger has accomplished and to enjoy the suspenseful anecdotes about several of his games. Short sentences and straightforward prose, as well as many colorful photographs, make this an appealing book. It is part of the "Sports Heroes." series. 2001, Capstone Books/Capstone Press, $21.26. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Ellen R. Butts
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Slight biographies that focus on the careers of sports standouts. Both books begin with comments on the athletes' current status and achievements in their respective sport. The narratives then trace each athlete's development and accomplishments from childhood to stardom. Limited personal information is related as well, and quotes are highlighted in gold. Both books paint positive pictures of their subjects but neither account brings its subject to life. In addition, readers would benefit from background knowledge on the sports since terms such as "five-goal shootout" and "par" are not explained in the texts or listed in the glossaries. Clear, full-page color photographs appear throughout the volumes. Statistics; career highlights; and lists of resources, Web sites, and related organizations conclude each volume. There are several other titles available on both of these athletes.-Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreeboro Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
