Librarian Review of Sports Fun!

These entries in the Sports Fun! Series are a fantastic way to engage beginning readers with a variety of sports. Each title includes bright photos to aid the reader in understanding the simple text with bold words. Readers will learn about where and how to play the sport, how to score and win (if applicable), and what equipment and accessories are needed to play. Each book includes simple diagrams about how to play the sport, the moves, and a glossary of some of the bolded words. In Archery, readers will learn that archers can play alone or on teams. Volleyball reveals that a team must score 25 points to win a game. Golf discusses different golf terms, such as chipping, which means hitting the ball so that it goes high in the air. Tennis shows the various tennis moves to aid readers in understanding the game. Snowboarding shares a fun fact about halfpipes, the place that looks like a pipe cut in half. The book Skiing covers the three types of skiing: cross-country, downhill, and free-style with colorful examples. These titles are perfect for any library for beginning readers to enjoy learning about the fun and fascinating fundamentals of sports!
