Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jody Little
National Basketball Association fans will enjoy this book about the players, the coaches and the many preparations that go into a pro basketball game. Readers will learn about the exciting half-time shows, the rituals of travel to and from games, the training room, the practices and drills that occur before a game and even the roles of the referees and journalists who cover the games. As part of the, "From the Locker Room to the Press Box" series, readers are treated to sidebars that include fun sports facts and interesting rituals of some of the most famous NBA players including LeBron James and Shane Battier. The book has easy-to-read text, captioned, colored photos of players, fans and behind-the-scene action on each page. The author highlights and defines important basketball vocabulary throughout the book. To assist with school reports or projects, a table of contents, glossary, additional reading sources, Internet sites and index are also included. Reviewer: Jody Little
