Gr 4-8-These authors' enthusiasm for their subjects is infectious. Packed with upbeat writing and vivid, full-color illustrations, the series integrates straightforward biographical data with lively details of action on and off the field. The books also explore each subject's professional and personal influence on family members, and frequent sidebars detail relevant sports history. Bold but judicious use of color in chapter and section heads, combined with a clean layout, makes these titles inviting.[Page 84]. Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.
