K-Gr 3-What shines through in both of these books is Gibbons's dedication to presenting the games as fun. Each volume outlines all of the necessary equipment and rules and describes a fictitious game to demonstrate the facts. The illustrations, especially those of the players, clearly reflect the action. Both entries have a glossary with key terms, including important concepts such as teamwork and sportsmanship. Excellent choices for beginner players and readers.-Meghan R.
