Reviews

Series Made Simple

Running swiftly through preparations and game play, simple text and ample photographs introduce students to some less publicized athletics. The info provided is enough to pique the interest of young sports enthusiasts, but does not offer detailed rules of the games discussed. Kids who are already familiar with the subjects will not learn anything new; however, this set is a great introduction to alternative sports for beginning readers. Photos include a diverse cast of kids of different ages and genders enjoying the sports safely. Bowling notably includes a differently abled child as well. VERDICT A bit niche, but worthy additions nonetheless.
