This will be a fun book for kids to look at, but I don't see it being one that will be read over and over. It doesn't focus on one sport in particular, so this is a broad view that will help children understand what is out there, and perhaps encourage them to find something new to play.
My favorite page, and one I bet others will enjoy (because this fascinated me as a kid too) is called Sports Balls- The Inside Scoop. I always wondered what was inside the balls I played with, and this spread shows them all. From bowling balls to golf balls, this page shows balls split in half and what resides inside. So cool.
Then the book moves on to common, but classic games such as basketball, baseball and football. Equipment is detailed, history of the sports is given and terminology discussed. From there we move on to other sports and finally to the extreme sports. Tons of fun facts are given, weird trivia and comparable statistics make this book a hit. Great for kids who want to know what is out there and some facts to make them knowledgeable on the subject. 4 stars!
Sports after relaxation and entertainment the word sport is a root coming from an old French word Desport. These pages have various terms and descriptions for basketball, baseball and more. There are photos of who’s the best at their sport and what types of trophies and recognition athletes receive from being the best. Readers will also learn which sports are played all over the world. If you are eager to learn and become a sporty or if you are a sporty and you want to test your knowledge this guide will help you become the sports enthusiast you’ve always wanted to be.
