Reviews for Kentucky Derby


Library Media Connection Reviews 2010 November/December
These four new additions to the series entertain as they educate, providing an analytical examination of the sport, an outline of the rules, and an overview of the sport around the world. Each volume discusses the sport or award, the rules, the equipment, qualifying for the sport or event, women, legends and current stars, famous firsts, the rise of the sport or event, and provides questions to test your knowledge and resources for further research. The colorful photographs, tables, and charts make these books inviting to read, while the writing level and content will entice even the most reluctant sports-loving student to read more. The material is presented in short segments in an orderly format that avoids any confusion. These books are useful as additional or beginning resources for biographies, and general nonfiction reading. Glossary. Index. Recommended.
