Reviews for Power at the Plate
Library Media Connection Reviews 2012 March/April
In this fast-paced sports series, readers find themselves in the middle of the action; the graphic novel format is easy to follow, and the text is color coded. Each title ends with a Sports Zone Postgame Recap section that reviews stats and summarizes highlights. The Postgame Extra includes discussion questions and writing prompts, along with a glossary of sports terms. Students will enjoy that some pages are set up like a sports ticker, sharing the latest stats and scores. Teachers will like that the books focus on universal values like sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, and compromise. These vibrant, action-packed books will find a home with sports fans.
