Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ramirose I. Attebury
This member of the "Deportes y actividades/Sports and Activities" series provides a very basic overview of the game of basketball. Most young students who are at least somewhat familiar with the game will find little new in this book. Accompanied by generic stock photos of children wearing dated clothing, the text of this book states that basketball players dribble, throw, catch, and shoot the ball. Although the book mentions that successful shots can gain a team one, two, or three points, no detail is given about what is required to earn each number. The book also mentions that basketball players play as a team, but no details are given about game rules or about two teams competing. While the book could prove useful in providing encouragement about being physically active, it does little to let readers know much about the sport itself. Repetitive text will be helpful for struggling readers, but will not necessarily provide much stimulation for most readers. The book does benefit from a glossary, which is more substantive than the text itself, a table of contents, and an index. Reviewer: Ramirose I. Attebury
