Children's LiteratureBarry Sanders. Reggie White, Walter Payton. Readers may be familiar with the exploits of these former football stars. Each four-page chapter contains photos, career highlights, and brief biographical information of these and seven other players' greatest games and plays. The book states in the introduction that many other football legends could have made the list; this array simply represents the author's choices. Only one currently active NFL player, wide receiver Jerry Rice, is in the top 10. But including legends who played in the 1960s and '70s, such as linebacker Dick Butkus, and those who played in the 1920s and '30s, such as Red Grange, gives readers a sense of pro football history. After reading the book, they'll be able to talk about football greats with Dad or Grandpa, who may be more familiar with the gridiron stars of the earlier periods. Part of the "Sports Top 10" series.
