Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
For the youngest fans, or anyone who craves basketball action photos, the "NBA Champions" revised series offers a lively gallery along with basic facts for basketball beginners. Starting with information about the team's hometown, a double spread shows a cool, aerial shot of Chicago's skyscrapers at night and a look from floor-level at the team lined up in the United Center; a bit of Bulls history is illustrated with a black-and-white photo of early player Bob Love stretching for a basket. Kids learn that the Bulls began playing in 1966 and, with the acquisition of extraordinary guard Michael Jordan, took off in the 1980s. Each volume offers a list of team facts, mostly about NBA championships—beginning in the 1990s, the Bulls have won six times. Other pages feature easy-to-read text on panels dividing two dramatic color shots or with a wide close-up focusing on star players like the legendary rebounder Joakim Noah, guard Jerry Sloan, and strong center Artis Gilmore. Toni Kukoc from Europe and forward Scottie Pippen (expert at high dunks) get pictures of their own as top players of the past. A newer star, point guard Derrick Rose, is shown wearing his white, red, and black Bulls uniform looking alert as he prepares to make an assist. From the poster-yellow endpapers to a final page with an index and a glossary of terms like assists, record, and title, young basketball fanatics can enjoy this action-filled introduction to the Bulls, the book's sharp design, and the excellent sports photography.
