Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4–Lists declaring the “best” of any subject often generate much interest, if only to see whether or not readers’ personal favorites have been mentioned. Otherwise, these books, which highlight only 12 male stars from each sport, are inadequate. Each player has been allocated just a spread, consisting of an informational paragraph under a colorful photo of him in action, opposite a chart listing the years played, team membership, and individual achievements such as Most Valuable Player or number of trips to the Super Bowl. Sentences are short with important vocabulary words highlighted in red and defined in the glossary. All charts are current through the 2008-09 seasons. Strictly for dedicated fans of these sports.
